Take if from the Kids

Posted on March 3, 2015

Who do you take advice from?
As an adult, I try to take advice from people that know what they’re talking about. Medical consulting from doctors, auto advice from mechanics, and drink suggestions from bartenders. Recently it seems, companies seem to have forgotten where and from who to get and give advice. There are an awful lot of new commercials were kids are giving advice. A child discussing who you should get your insurance from, or a baby telling you how to trade your stocks, or an entire group of kids telling you where to buy your chicken nuggets.
At what point in time did these companies decide that their customers would rather get advice from children with no real world experience than professionals? Even an actor that portrays a person that has been through an experience seems better than a child. There is nothing in a child’s portrayal that gives me the illusion that they have actually spent hours browsing insurance companies.
With that said, I wouldn’t be against some classes that would make kids more self sufficient. If we want to get kids to that point, lets do it fast. Let’s teach them all Microsoft Office so they can do our taxes, and when they’re done with that, they can run down to the liquor store and pick out the finest whiskey for mommy and daddy.
