McDonald’s Toy Lawsuit: Really?

I’m posting this message as an American and a parent. In this day and age of instant gratification and the ME generation, I find it interesting that people will defer parenting to others. The Center for Science in the Public Interest thinks it’s unfair that McDonald’s puts toys in their Happy Meals because it forces parents to be, well, parents. So much so that a lawsuit is pending regarding McDonald’s and their Happy Meal toys. This really begs the question, do parents have the ability to tell their kids no and still be good parents?

McDonald’s should stop toying around with kids’ health.

That’s the message from a consumer group that is threatening to sue McDonald’s if they don’t stop using toys to lure kids into eating fatty food.

“This advertising is unfair to kids and to parents who are put in the position of constantly telling their kids no,” Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), which is threatening the suit, told CBS News.

Once again, as a parent, I find it almost laughable that people would rather sue than tell their kids they can’t have a Happy Meal. If that’s the case, then tell the cereal companies with sugar-laden products to stop putting surprises in the box, stop putting candy at the check-out aisle and anything else that parents have the ability to decide for their kids.
