The documentary touches base on the fact that, while kids are taught from birth how what you buy is who you are, they are not only being marketed products but also essential values. Kids are getting older, younger and are brain washed to believe that “Happiness is never more than partial” (88). Happiness is supposed to be created from a base of what we want to become instead of you are what you buy. What you buy in our society determines your value and happiness is mistaken for satisfaction.

Family Life and Juvenile Delinquency Researchers have established that there many paths to juvenile delinquency and numerous risk factors that contribute to a youth’s opportunity to offend. The environment in which a child is raised plays a very crucial role in predicting their behaviour in adolescence and subsequent, in adulthood.
