PIA Press Release

DEPED 7 calls on parents, community for help vs voyeurism on the Net

by Roberto M. Cabardo

Cebu City (5 June) -- The Department of Education in Central Visayas has appealed to parents to monitor the activities of their children outside of their homers to make sure that they do not go astray and instead focus on wholesome activities.

In his response to a query from the media yesterday on how schoolchildren could avoid the catastrophic influence of voyeurism in the internet sites, DEPED Central Visayas Regional Director Recaredo Brogonia said that parents have to remember that teachers are there to help them look after their children but there is no substitute for parental care.

"It is still their (parents) duty to make sure that children do not engage in the activities that are morally degrading that lead them to illegal acts," said Borgonia.

Lately, the Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili sex video scandal called by some as the 'H1K1 virus', has generated varied interest from the public including young children who have access to the internet.

Borgonia stressed that the community also has a great role in educating the child and therefore, it also must help by informing parents and school authorities of the unusual activities of schoolchildren in internet shops that may ruin the future of those considered by Rizal as the hope of the fatherland.

While it is part of the campaign of schools here to teach children to be computer literate, DEPED does not espouse the use of such technological gadget by schoolchildren in activities that make them acquire only bad habits and practices.

In Central Visayas, there are now over a thousand internet cafes that are usually located a few meters away from schools and business centers.

Whether Borgonia's call will yield positive results surely depends on how serious parents and the community are in protecting schoolchildren from the collateral hazards of the internet. (PIA Cebu) [top]
