Our decision to buy that toy for our five-year-old child was an emergency because of the need to take her to work for a whole week because her school was on mid-term break, and we had no one to stay with her at home. The toy had a lot of exciting children games. On sighting the toy, our daughter got hilarious. She explored it with concentration and excitement throughout the whole day. I felt very relieved because the toy kept her really engaged so that I could concentrate on my work.
My husband made a strange discovery later after taking a studied look at that toy! One of the games had in the back ground, naked figures of a man on top of a woman whose legs were wide open. The figure of the man was in constant motion, moving back and forth on the woman. It was embarrassing to discover that behind the beautiful façade that the exciting games presented was a mind-bending pollutant! Evil would have crept in unnoticed!
It is therefore very important that parents who are really committed to purifying the parenting process of their children should ensure that all children’s books, television programmes, electronic games and books pass through proper scrutiny before they are made available to the children. Children’s access to such things should be withheld until their propriety is certified by parents. Parents should create time once in a while to watch regular television programmes with their children to be sure that they don’t have polluted evil contents.
