Excellent and thoughtful post. These are issues that I try to address with my daughter as well. we don't do any TV so little exposure to commercials however ads will catch her eye when we're in stores. I make it a point to talk to her about what it is that caught her eye...for example a picture of a horse? then talk about the product it's actually advertising (in this case Cologne) and then laughing about how the advertisers "trick" us. I feel that's an important step in understanding marketing and "why" she may feel she wants something.
