Child Safety and Cyber Safety Awareness at Jiva
The PTM on 5th May for the parents and guardians of sub-juniors in Kindergarten was very special, as it initiated to sensitize and create awareness for child safety. The purpose of this teacher/parent meeting was to apprise and alert the guardian against the crime and exploitation of innocent children in society, since they fall an easy victim to such happenings in society.
Through the programme they were sensitized for child safety and cyber safety in order to save children from being exploited. The parents themselves will have to take some precautionary measures by explaining safety steps to children for e.g. While changing, bathing and the difference between safe and unsafe touch. Equally important is the need for cyber safety, as in this highly technology developing world, even the little ones prefer playing games on a smart phone. They even know to use internet, hence social media has an important role in aggravating the situation. The children have become tech-savy, which is good to acquire knowledge but as parents they need to keep a watchful eye, so that the technology is not being misused by them. Therefore all care, and safety of a child is significant and the parents need to limit usage of such media before their children and represent an ideal self.
