Therefore, it is spending billions of dollars each year on the premise that a tug on your heartstrings to mobilize their purse strings. They have unleashed an army of market researchers to help them fulfill their mission. The children have taken over.

Everything has been made possible by a dramatic change in the style of parenting, parents dictating less and listen more, and a generation of under twelve years that is larger and richer than the Baby Boomers.

Meet the players who helped the children take over.
