Buying More Can Give Children Less.
Holst, Carol Benson
Young Children, v54 n5 p19-23 Sep 1999
Examines the prevailing myth that children's well-being increases through consumerism. Addresses the scope of child-focused consumption, negative impact of child-oriented consumerism on child development, creation of an imagination-stifling environment; and the relationship between instant gratification and avoidance of challenges. Concludes that schools can provide relief through the classroom setting and curriculum. (SD)
