Portugal's ADORABLE Child Abuse Awareness Posters!!???!!



Portugal's Institute of Child Support actually used these posters in 2007 to bring about child abuse awareness! They certainly get your attention and I think that's very clever... although disconcerting. Oh and thank you for including second hand smoke. I can't stand when people smoke around their children and even their pets (or pets smoking around their children like in these posters? lol)! Click here for more info although in Japanese lol.

Update 2/22/10 - I'm the biggest idiot on earth for thinking the last picture was about second-hand smoke.

Wow, I don't know how to feel about those. I feel they are disturbing enough to get the message across, but you really have to look at it for awhile to get the point.

I think shock ads like that should be more obvious, because people while only give them a passing glance as they walk by.

Sara Mari - i know what you mean. i've never seen these in person so i have no idea if the proper effect comes across. its tough to think of something so painful and serious as being represented this way, but whatever works i guess.

Yea... I definitely find these disconcerting. I think I'd feel better of the victim were less happy looking about it, I guess.

PetSugar said...

Catherine - omg i thought the exact same thing!! the cat picture! that is my major qualm. its the only picture the does more than use cute animals, but rather makes a mockery of the action as well.

I've only seen the first one, when they were first released. I have a feeling the last one is about something much more serious than second hand smoke.

PetSugar said...

Caro-chan - omfg why didn't i pay attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i guess i couldn't even fathom it so i just couldn't let myself see it that way!

these make my tummy hurt...:(

PetSugar said...

Bianca - lol my stomach reacts to my emotions too

Strawberry Anarchy said...

wow they are amazingly cute!

PetSugar said...

Strawberry Anarchy - with time i appreciate the message more because they want the idea of turning something cute into disturbing to be disturbing since thats what it means to bring it into a childs world! ah that doesn't address your comment lol but i had to say it :)
