It is normal to be naive as a kid. I don't see how it's a bad thing. Let them live in their bubble as long as they can. Also, they were 8, 9 or 10 years-old in 2011, so I don't think they understand what this is all about. I don't know under which circumstances you grew up or what kind of life you live. I don't know you enough to tell. But when I was around that age I didn't care for such things. I only cared about when the next Bravo magazine would come out or whether I could meet my friends. I know things are different now for kids but that doesn't mean that they can't be carefree. Yeah, I do agree that they should be made aware. However, that is the parent's responsibility. Posting an angry post on the forum won't help them because non of them uses this forum. It'd be probably a bigger help if people tweeted or pmed them.
But when a company is basically taking advantage of them and using them to get free advertising, I don't think that's ok. And when all it does is waste their time and make them upset, I don't think that's ok either. If this was just a harmless thing, fine, they can be naive and live in the bubble, but that's not the case. If it's legitimately making them angry and upset, maybe it's not a good idea. Maybe the next time this crops up, they'll know better now. I'm sure if anyone had tried to warn them ahead of time, they wouldn't have listened. Sometimes the only way kids can learn anything is from experience. And now that they know, maybe they won't fall for it again.
