What do we have to do? Must always increase knowledge and skill in child rearing. Understand the negative impacts of new technology. Teach children or students to use technology wisely. Prepare children or student to recognize and alert towards their surrounding and peoples behavior towards them. Work together at home, with school and neighborhood
Knowledge and Skill on Child Rearing Agree on implementing: Dual Parenting Exercise a right, good and fun child rearing : - teach faith and good behavior - build good communication : children will have dignity and good self-esteem - discipline with love: children will be able to think critically and control behavior - provide enough chances for play
Using technology wisely Introduction to new technology should be appropriate with childrens age and development There must be a purpose Children need thorough explanation on the dos and donts in the using new technology. Children need constant mentor in its usage.
How do we prepare our kids to be alert towards people around them ?
1. Teach children how precious they are Teach children that their body is really precious: - for them - for us and - for the rest of the family Therefore he/she must take care and protect it carefully.
Teach Children: Dont forget honey, your body is VERY important. So dont let strangers touch your body in any way. You understand, dont you?
2. Introduce the difference between: Strangers, acquaintances, friends, best friends, and family STRANGERS: Are people that we dont know at all. For example: people in the supermarket What kind of information can we give them Can we be too friendly? Can we trust them?
ACQUAINTANCES People whom we know their names, jobs or address. For Example: postman, teacher, etc. Children must be taught to be cautious because they dont know these acquaintances very well. FRIENDS We know a lot about these people, even their personality. We can play with them and trust them, with limits and boundaries.
BEST FRIENDS More than just friends, we really trust them but there are still solid boundaries, we cant FULLY trust them for EVERYTHING. FAMILY Are people who are closely related to us, By blood or marriages Who do we know very well? Still careful.
3.Teach children types of touching Good/allowed touches Confusing touches Bad touches
4.Teach children to believe in what they feel Children posses innate sensitivity about feelings and peoples behavior towards them. We can teach or train children to observe and trust the various feelings they feel in dealing with other people whether it is : Fun Confusing Scary!
5. NO, I DONT WANT or DONT DO THAT!! Teach children to say NO, I DONT WANT or DONT DO THAT!! To adults or older kids. Especially if he thinks he needs to protect himself Act firm, rude and lying may be needed if children feel that they are threatened.
6.Assure children that they can trust us with their secrets Many sexual violence and raping are done by persuasion and threats, therefore this, too, needs to be explained to children. We also need to assure our children that as their parents, we are the right place where they can share their secrets.
You cant do it alone Work with your spouse in raising and nurture your children TOGETHER work together with people who is involve in raising your children: Grandparents, maids, family members, even the driver
It takes a village.. Work together with the school and neighborhood to stay alert, take care and help to protect all children Work together with the neighborhood: book stores, libraries, etc
7. Complete it with prayers After all had been said, tried and done, complete our efforts with prayers. May God protects our children from this overlooked disaster. For He is the best protector
