Back-to-School Ads

I always feel bad for the kids trying to enjoy their lazy summer days while being bombarded with back-to-school advertisements.  And as a parent, I must say the pressure for a whole new wardrobe to be purchased at once seems unnecessary.  The weather is usually mild the first month or more into the school year and the kids still wear their summer clothes anyway.  Ah well…
