Marketing to Kids

Three is such as wonderful age.  The tantrums die down and they can do more on their own such as going to bathroom, getting dressed, washing hands, and brushing teeth.  Since Aidan knows he will get a timeout for certain behaviors, the behaviors are fairly rare.  It's a wonderful age.  They are so open and generally happy and fun and still want to be close to you.  I have noticed how effective marketing is for 3 year old.  Aidan wants every single toy he sees on TV.  I have started to skip over them on the DVR.  Also, going through the grocery store, all the junk cereals are right at cart level and the colors and pictures are very attractive to a young mind.
