During dinnertime, we usually have the television on in the background. A few weeks ago during dinner, a commercial came on. Let's just say, it was for men with certain private "issues." It was about 7 p.m., which I consider to be prime family time. Lauren and Dominic were there with us at the dinner table. They didn't really notice the commercial, but I did and I kind of went off about it. My family is used to me getting up on my soapbox :) It seemed pretty inappropriate considering the time it was on. I don't think a little kid like Dominic's age (7) should have to be asking their parents what Viagra is!! I can remember when certain feminine hygiene product commercials were considered to be pretty taboo. Those commercials are all over the place now, on at all different times. I understand that advertisers need to make money, but having those type of commercials on during the time frame of 7 - 10 p.m. seems kind of tacky. Anybody else offended by some of the commercials that have been on television lately?? Call me a little old-fashioned, but I think some of them are pretty inappropriate!!
