    There are many children or baby products, just like another market from adult products, we should allow this market to do commercials. Children appearing in the advertisements, posters or photos can attract more customers and help the buyers know more about the product.
    However, if the children commercials involve sexual contents, the commercial should be banned and the situation should be stopped. Children are innocent and pure, the society should not use their innocent to earn money immorally.
    In conclusion, children should be allowed to get involved in commercials but with strict laws to specify the contents to protect our children.

  • Children should get involved in commercials!

    Children should be allowed to get involved in commercials.

    Children deserve to have a chance to experience the world as getting involved in commercials can grant them a whole new life experience and help them to explore the world. Moreover, getting involved in commercials is the starting point to the acting profession. If children are not allowed to get involved in commercials, they lost a chance to discover their interest and ability. Besides, children is the next generation of the society, they deserve to have a chance of experiencing the society as well.

    In general, public may think that children are not mature enough to make their own decision and don’t have the ability for time management. Nevertheless, you never know if you never try. Children should be giving an opportunity to learn but not protect them in the greenhouse. And I believe that the case of Celine Yeung is just rare but not common. As you may see that in western country such as America and United Kingdom, child as a celebrity is just a common phenomenon. Even the well-known David Beckham’s son is a child celebrity and act as a model for Burberry.

    In conclusion, children should be allowed to get involved in commercials as to broaden their horizon and for self-discovery. Parents should assess the effect of the advertisement to their children before letting them to make their own decision in order to prevent the misuse the commercials.

  • It is fair to use children in television advertisements.

    Some advertisements need children to promote their products. For instance, corn flakes advertisement. They are used to use children in their advertisement because their products are popular in children. Also, Toys"R"Us is used to use children in commercials to attract children. However, children cannot think critically, parents will be their guidance person or even the one who make decision. Parents should assess the advertisement whether it is suitable for their children, such as the message or products involve in the advertisements. In general, involving in TV advertisement does not do much harm to children. It can be an interesting and unforgettable life experience for children; also they may develop their interest or personal status positively through involving in commercials. In addition, they are still too young, which means they have abilities and a lot of opportunities to try on new things. On the other side, people also like watching advertisement involve children, because their innocence faces, actions or conversations please the viewer. Meanwhile, children are usually seen as a positive image, which helps the products promoted in the advertisement looks more reliable.

  • Yes, it is fair to use children in television advertisements.

    In general, public might think that children is not mature enough to make informed decisions and this will even affect their study. Nevertheless, allowing the children to explore the world is important as they can gain more opportunities of having experience of different things. Giving chance to children to make their own decision is extremely important but at the same time parents should assess the effects of the advertisement to their children and help children to analyse the purpose of the advertisement, also listen to their opinions like are they willing to do this kind of thing. Moreover, it is important that the parents to educate children to allocate their time on study and give them support and encouragement. Ultimately, children showing up in television advisement not only can help the children to become more confident but also have unforgettable experience in their life.

  • Yes,it is fair to use children in television advertisements.

    First,it is important to listen to children. If children want to participate in television advertisements,parents should allow them to do so after assessing the effects of the advertisement to their children. Parents should give a chance to children who are interested in acting to express themselves so that they can gain more other learning experiences. Apart from allowing their children participate in advertisements,it is important for parents to explain the exaggeration in the advertisements to children so that they would trust the contents of advertisements absolutely.
    Besides,using children can increase the effectiveness of certain advertisement,such as those of child¡¯s products. Take baby products as an example. It is difficult for companies not using babies in their advertisements to promote their products effectively. It is much more credible to use certain group of people to promote certain consumer goods.
    Therefore,I think it is fair to use children in television advertisements.

  • It is not wrong to use children in television advertisements.

    It is depending upon the child's choice, weather he wants to act or not.
    It is about creativity and appeal. Their studies are not affected , and also their growth and his school education. It is fair to use children in television advertisements. Using children in television advertisements is not wrong.

  • Advertisements are all about creativity and appeal

    This is the world driven by advertisements. Then why not children play a crucial role in it. I accept the kids are innocent but they have their parents to take the decisions on their behalf. The brand is just trying to make a better and more impacting appeal, that's it.

  • Of course it would fetch them a better experience provided they are not much disturbed

    I support the involvement of children being participating in the advertisement. It would give them a lot of experience in the days of their livelihood. They would really understand their capacity to shine in such a field so that when they grow they would be in a position to choose the field of their choice.

  • Yes, I think children can involved in advertising if they wish to be involved.

    If acting is not affecting their studies. If they are not feeling stressed and if they have the capacity to become a good actor or actress in future they can be used in advertising. If it's not affecting their minds and if they know how to balance their real life and TV shows, then it's absolutely fine. As the money which they earn now will help them tomorrow in their studies etc. But if the marketing world is harming the children in their growth then it must be immediately stopped.

  • Children should not be involved in television advertising!

    Children might not know what they're being advertised for, and when they do find out, they might not like it.

    Advertising that uses kids are exploiting them, or misusing them. They are just using the child to buy their product, and that's not what children are meant for.

    When those kids go back to school, they will be more popular, and other kids might feel like they have to be on television to be popular and known.

    Kids should be able to enjoy their childhood, and should not have to feel the pressure of being on a television advertisement. When they are adults, they'll most likely regret appearing on an ad for something.

  • In my opinion, I think teenagers should not be allowed to involve in the commercials.

    As teenagers participated in advertisements and film,they become popular and will face many comments and criticism. However, teenagers are not mature enough, when facing criticism, they are difficult to accept and may cause psychological shadow. It is bad for their mentally development. Besides, involving in the commercials have to spend a lot of time. As a result, teenagers may not have enough time focusing in studies and their academic result may be affected. Therefore, I think teenagers should not be allowed to involve in the commercials.

  • Children should have good and precious memory of their childhood

    I understand that someone may like to be famous and live under the spotlight. It's okay because everybody have the right to choose a way they like to live. However, we should pay extra attention if it is used in the case of children. Since children are not mature enough to think about moral and they just follow the instructions given by adults. They do not know what is wrong and do not know how to refuse. As the result, they may regret of taking some photos or doing something in their childhood when they grow up. However, it is too late because everyone has seen the photos. It is not the ideas of themselves and these will become the regret of them.
    Children should not involve in commercial because it may bring lots of pressure to them too. Just like what I mention above, children should enjoy the life which are full of happiness. Once they involve in commercial, pressure will be brought to them and they tends to meet the standard of the advertisement or dramas. Besides, they and their families may also need to face the discussions of the public. It is too early for children to have lots of pressures and too much workload. They should have their own time with their friends and families, but not bear the pressure.

  • I reckon it is not appropriate to use children in television advertisements.

    First, Children are not old enough to criticize what is right or wrong. Take Celine Yeung as an example. She went viral in Hong Kong because of her cuteness and adorableness. And that’s why she was starring in commercials and TV programmes. Celine's popularity raised so much and even got fans. Indeed, she had the chance to meet many celebrities as well. But the consequences was that she was often judged by the public for example her photo album. The mother of Celine was accused to exploiting Celine to gain money. Childhood is the most significant thing to a child. Children are not ready to receive the stress from the public. Parents should be the good role to protect their children from the harm from outside, to be a shelter. Popularity is not necessary for a child.
    Moreover, the tight regimen of a child who star in TV programmes and commercials was not able to focus on their studies. The basic is always the most important. The child may come across study problems when they can't squeeze time from their tight schedule to study.

  • I think children should not be allowed to get involved in commercials.

    As after filming the advertisements, children may become more popular. Everyone is paying their attention to the children for example like Alexandre from Taiwan. His mother opened a facebook page which is followed by 1 million netizens. Everything about Alexandre is being seen by everyone of the world. Children are not mature enough to think what they want or is the thing benefit to themselves, they are just simply accept everything that their parents arrange for them. What if the children hate being famous? Nothing can be done to solve the problem. As the children get popular, everyone may praise or criticize them. It may bring negative impacts on their childhood. They may have a sense of entitlement, which will affect their social circle. Parents should not let children involved in commercials until they are old enough to decide what they want.

  • Children are not commodities. Children can not make informed decisions to sell themselves.

    Fundamentally, actors involved in media marketing are selling themselves to a user. Below a certain age children are psycho-emotionally and developmentally unable to understand the complexities of advertising and marketing. Including, but not limited to, the moral and ethical discussion of the manipulations of an audience to to spend money (worked for and earned by adults) and but commodities. In essence the child her/him self becomes a commodity bought and paid for by a business.
