In my opinion, the regulations set by The Supreme Council for Media Regulation (SCMR), headed by journalist Karam Gabr, for safe media for children are extremely important.. Whether with regard to children and family programs on the channels, what they broadcast and how to direct messages to our children; as political programs, talk shows and sports programs have taken us far away from the family, which is the basic building block of society.. this code set by the Council protects our children, It emphasizes privacy and objectivity, prevents asking questions above the level of the child’s awareness and understanding, stresses the need to put a warning when broadcasting any news in an entertaining or imaginary framework, prevents broadcasting violent and sexual scenes, and stresses the need to choose a good time and language to be presented to the child.
this code warns against using language that reinforces the negative images of disabled children. It stressed that the chaos that has spread in the advertisements poses a danger to the child, in addition to the commitment of electronic games companies to limit the excessive use of children in the number of hours without controls.
In fact, I appreciate the position of the Supreme Council for Media and its head journalist Karam Gabr, on setting controls and ethics for safe media for children.
We are waiting for applying this code on platforms that present inappropriate content in the means of communication and electronic platforms, as well as channels that present immoral concepts, such as that channel that broadcasts films including same-sex relationships since 2017, this channel announced that by the end of 2022, half of its heroes will be gays.
What are the controls that should be put in place by psychologists, what is the body that should monitor the content that is presented to children.. The Supreme Council for Media carried out its duty and presented this code but the topic should be more comprehensive and broader.. Our children watch Tik Tok, YouTube and others all the time, this needs controls so that we prepare the opportunity for our children to learn and allow the information to reach them within the framework that builds a new generation and determines the future of Egypt and its scholars.
Building the future of a state is the role of the family, the society, the media, and the state in an integrated manner.
Well, we have the child document and we have the new personal status laws that are being discussed. We have a renaissance but we still need to have integration between all parties, and I am waiting for it to be put into effect soon. The security of our children, who represent the future of our homeland in the new republic, cannot be delayed and needs all our support, and appreciation.
