Does the Rise of Consumer Culture Both You?

. . .If so, then check out "Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood" on Tuesday, August 25, from 7 to 9 PM at St. John the Evangelist Church (111 New Balch Street in Beverly). . . . for FREE!

Are your kids always nagging you for stuff? Do you want kids to be happy for who they are, and now what they own? Are you worried about children growing up too fast? Are gender stereotypes cramping their style? Do you want kids to think for themselves? Do you value kids' imagination? Does the rise of consumer culture bother you?

Then check out the film for "an eye-opening account of the pervasive and pernicious effects of children's advertising on the health and well-being of kids" and a lively discussion afterward.
