CHILDREN need to establish good social habits at an early age to avoid a negative mind set as they progress in life, Deputy Chief Censor Jim Abani says.
Abani told children at Waigani Primary School during the International Children’s Day celebrations last week that they should not be accessing pornographic materials as it was illegal. The school’s administration invited the Censorship Office to speak as some students had been disciplined on the issue of pornography so they were requested to elaborate on the issue of pornography and the consequences associated with a minor in relation to the issue.
Awareness coordinator Karen Gabby and public relations officer Delly Morofa presented the advantages and disadvantages of using mobile phones and social media respectively.
They encouraged teachers and students to promote the use of an average mobile phone for emergency or communication purposes and not to own advanced mobile phones with applications that can disturb a child during classes or allow them to access indecent materials during schooling hours.
National Road Safety Council representatives spoke on the causes of road accidents and urged the students to be cautious when using the sidewalks or when travelling in a moving vehicle.
