A little light reading

There’s been a slew of BBC articles on children at the moment, ideal for your lunch hour perusal. 

“Our children need time and not stuff” by Mark Easton 

“UK families face consumer pressure” by Sean Coughlin

These titles are a little “no duh” for most of us, but they’re still worth a look.

And in case you liked my post on Joel Bakan’s book Childhood Under Siege and wanted to add to that mounting sense of depair, there’s:

“Should word-of-mouth be child’s play for advertisers?” by Stephen Robb.

In case you were wondering, it turns out that the answer is ‘no’!
