Parents might do their best to shield their kids from advertising related to alcohol, but alcohol marketers are doing their best to reach them anyway.

Parents today are willing to buy more for their kids because trends such as smaller family size, dual incomes and postponing having children until later in life mean that families have more disposable income. To effectively market to children, advertisers need to know what makes kids tick. For example, in the late s the advertising firm Saatchi and Saatchi hired cultural anthropologists to study children engaging with digital technology at home in order to figure out how best to engage them with brands and products.
