th
Floor  New York, NY 10023RE: For the safety of our children- -stop showing your child neglect promoting commercialDear Mr. Marcus:As the Geauga County, Ohio Juvenile Judge Court responsible for protecting the bestinterest of children in my county, I am writing to respectfully request that you stop running theTime Warner Cable television commercial in which a father engrossed in watching a footballgame on TV tells his young son to go outside and play in a thunderstorm. This offensive
commercial epitomizes our county’s misplaced priority of self 
-gratification over parental childresponsibility.In the commercial, the father and apparently other family members are watching several
 programs on multiple televisions. This, alone, reflects our society’s debilitating addiction to
television.Worse, is the portrayal of the father, who is so self-absorbed by his need to watch afootball game that he tells his young son that it is okay to go outside and play in a violentlightening / thunderstorm.
