What Are Your Kids Watching?

Protecting Our Children Online with Family DHMS

“Oh my God! What are you watching?”

That’s the kind of rude awakening we get when we see our teenagers watching pornography online.

You are like ‘I did not train you to be this way. No, you didn’t, but the other teachers did. The other teacher didn’t ask for the kid’s permission. They just bombarded them with content. And knowing a kid’s curious mind…why not?

In today’s digital age, keeping track of what our kids are watching online has become increasingly challenging. With the rise of social media platforms and streaming services, children have easy access to a wide range of content, not all of which is suitable for their age. As parents, it’s our responsibility to ensure that our children are protected from pornography, harmful content and online dangers.

The Problem with Online Content

“Did you see the leaked video of some student? What about the one with a popular celebrity?” Laughing hysterically as though sharing this content is a thing of joy, we pass it on from device to device and we couldn’t care less what teenager stumbles on it.

From explicit sexual videos to leaked private footage, the internet is filled with content that can harm impressionable young minds. Platforms like TikTok, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube often host inappropriate material that can lead to poor mental health, sexism, objectification, and even sexual violence among teenagers. 

TikTok made recent headlines by removing from the last quarter of 2023, a staggering 176.5 million videos due to guideline violations, with 1.7 million originating from Nigerian users. Despite these efforts, the internet continues to be inundated with harmful content that appears uninvited. Harmful videos continue to circulate online, posing a significant threat to our children’s well-being.

Proposed Solution

According to a publication by
UNICEF, early exposure to pornography can have detrimental effects on mental health, fostering sexism, objectification, sexual violence among children, and unhealthy habits like masturbation. These are the results when we do not protect what our kids are watching. Their proposed solution emphasises government regulation of digital platforms to enforce content moderation standards. 

However, they stress that regulatory measures alone are insufficient. Educating and empowering children with critical thinking skills, media literacy, and knowledge about healthy relationships is crucial. Parents, educators, and communities must collaborate to support children in navigating the digital world safely.
