This whole commercial is just an argument to the whole nature vs. nurture debate. I grew up around drug addicts and drug dealings and all that crap, and all that did to me was to vow never to do drugs or have relations with those who do, so obviously nurture isn't everything. For those who believe in the nature side of the debate, this commercial isn't worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin getting it on. Not saying anything going on in this commercial is right, none of this should happen ever, but it does.
One thing I got from this commercial is that the guy beating his wife should care more about how it influences his kid than how it hurts his wife, isn't there something wrong with that. So the guy realizes this and then only beats his wife when his kid isn't around, now he gets an A+ because he's not influencing his kid, makes sense I guess. I just think we should think more of what and who we are directly hurting when we are doing these things and stop, so w

"I don't know how many little kids would help beat their moms..."

I think it meant that they would beat their wives when they were older.

Ah. I agree with teiso. My mom grew up in a house with a drunk dad, mother who didn't care, guns going off, sisters trying to stab one another, basically living on her own, etc. And while she's def not them, she married someone who was controlling and now that they're divorced, she's over protective ad slightly controlling, though she's getting better. Things that happen in our childhood effect who we become as adults.

Smart commercial.

My only concern is that it didn't say "No animals were harmed in the making of this commercial." lol

So basically, maybe some of our children will break the cycle and be better than us, but if we try and be better now for their sakes, they will have better potential for it, as well as the potential to be better, still.

"I don't think children are *entirely* blank slates.

Some are treated horribly and learn to take it as an example of how to *not* act, I've seen it in a lot of extreme situations.

It's like saying a kid is made out of clay, as opposed to rock, or play-doh, or anything else... The parents and teachers, and experiences only mold it out of what it already is, it can't change it into something it would never be.

So even if the child was raised in circumstances where bad situations happen like that, it doesn't mean they *will* do it as well."

You're right, sometimes a person will get lucky and learn to break the cycle. But you can't deny that what we do has an influence on the children who look up to us. And for every child who learns to break the cycle, there will be three children who don't, and even the ones that do, there might still be a lot of damage that will be a lot harder to fix when they're an adult, even though they've become better people than their parents.

Well, Adilicious, i am a kid.... I do know what happen around and most af my nieghbors are frekin hics! And most of the south is too. So basically the USA revolves around the following:

beer
nascar
porn
more beer
drugs
celebs
boobs on tv (in music vids)
rap
britany spears.
And you say the peeps in the US aren't stupid?

That commercial spoke great volumes. It hit hard and good.Though I have my doubts it will air in America; too many sensitive people will object it, even if it’s for the greater good.

Good commercial, and very true.

It should be sent to everyone who doesn't understand why so many young girls are ending up pregnant.
