So you pre-pick the brand of soap your going to buy?

Uh, yes.

All the more reason advertisers want your eyeballs-- you're loyal to your brand. One day you're going to need to buy diapers, or ointment, or any of a million other things you don't currently purchase. They want you to have some pre-existing knowledge of their brand. All other things being equal, it'll make it more likely you'll pick them. And become a customer for life.

After spending all their money on cell phones, kids cannot afford to buy products advertised to them on Facebook.

What? Parents buy the phones most of the times and pay for the minutes/data as well, which leads to point #2: kids have no bills. Every single dollar they have is disposable. Advertising gold.

You don't have to approach them as if you are blowing the whistle on your boss. Just tell them you are concerned about your personal liability should you get caught breaking the law.

Remember, the lawyers are there to protect the company, not you. Seek your own counsel first.
