As a pediatrician, caring for children until age 18, I am very concerned that the current COPPA regulations do not adequately protect our young people. As a parent, I feel very strongly that advertising/marketing efforts should not be targeted to children without parental consent. I am in favor of closing the loopholes in COPPA so that families can feel that their children's privacy is protected. Thank you.
