Jakarta, TOPNews Indonesia —
The appearance of the Aku Not Gay video ad on YouTube Kids has caused some parents concern. The reason is, giving full supervision of the spectacle child of course it is not easy, especially for the parent who work and are full of activity.
For this reason, it is important at least to provide children with provisions and understanding about what spectacles can be watched when you are not accompanying them.
Clinical psychologist Nurulia Rahma shares a number of guidelines that parents can apply in educating their children about age-appropriate shows.
According to the psychologist who is often called Rahma, the first step that can be taken is to give clear rules regarding what is allowed to be watched and what is not allowed.
“To make it easier for children, make a classification of shows and give examples,” said Rahma in a statement via short message when contacted by TOPNewsIndonesia.com, Monday (14/9).
He then gives examples of such classifications as:
1. Very goodFor example, everything related to the values of life, such as religion, moral values or etiquette and morals
2. Well, for example all spectacles related to science, such as the digestive system, outer space, marine life, and others
3. Just normal, for example movies, songs or anything neutral in nature
4. Bad, namely a spectacle that will have a bad impact on children. Whatever that is. For example, movies, songs, games that contain scenes of violence and sexual or sexual perversions.
“This will make it easier for children to choose what to watch and what not to watch. Children can compare for themselves what they see is included in which classification,” said Rahma.
“This will also make it easier for parents to discuss with their children what they are watching,” he added.
The next step that can be done is to provide explanations and rules that what is seen is also an age classification.
There are shows for babies and toddlers, some are for children, some are for teenagers, and some are for adults.
“Convey that at a lower age, it is not allowed to watch shows for those aged above it but for older ages it is permissible to watch shows under their age. For example, teenagers may watch shows for infants and children but may not watch shows for adults,” said Rahma.
In addition to providing this explanation, Rahma also reminded to give a number of rules before giving gadgets to children.
