By Kathleen McDonnell
Is Saturday morning TV as bad as it seems? Should I give my daughter a Barbie? Have I failed as a parent if my son keeps asking for military toys? How is the violence they see around them affecting kids today? With clarity and humor, McDonnell discusses why pop culture is an irresistible lure to kids and why it binds them together in a subculture of their own.
