We’re standing in line at the video store waiting to pay, (decidedly old school, but we needed something quick) and what do I see?
There are so many things wrong with this sign. Where do I begin?
1. Kids “NEED” candy. Do I even “need” to go into my mom lecture about need vs. want? I don’t “want” to, but I will if I “need” to….
2. In the United States 1 in 3 kids are overweight or obese. ONE IN THREE, and the numbers are climbing at an alarming rate. I have an idea: let’s tell them they need more candy.
3. I Tweeted/Facebooked a link to this article last week about the fact that kids now spend over 7 hours a day with various forms of media like TV, computer and video games. That’s 53 hours a week, most likely sitting. While they eat the candy they need.
Not to name names… but thank you Hollywood Video for helping our kids get the things they need.
