Kids as Consumers...

One of my favorite blogs, These Days in French Life, posted the following two videos on her site. They are worth the time to view and most especially, to think about.







Something needs to change in this society. Do check out These Days in French Life for a fascinating look at one family's attempts to disengage from the rampant consumerism most of us are surrounded by and caught up in.

Very informative videos. I was actually just talking to my husband a couple days ago about how I am going to start keeping the T.V. off more, and keep Carter busy doing other things. Puzzles, legos, coloring..just something to keep his brain active. In the spring it will get easier, since it'll be warming up. My parents raised me to not be so materialistic, but in a world that is steadily becoming more that way it's hard to raise my own child in the same way. Thanks for posting the videos!

Great videos... in my opinion, the book by the same title is an eye-opening must-read for all parents!!
