Violent shows and movie trailers in public places

Postby mintcc » Thu Oct 29, 2009 6:01 pm

Just ranting here...Seems we can't avoid this in SG, every where we go, MRT, buses out side video shops, IT shops... there is bound to have some (extremely) violent scene going on.

And DS is so captivated whenever he see those ... :roll: which doesn't goes down very well to mummy who have read what violent movies do to preschool boys... :cry:

Yes, especially on the MRT platforms. It's very irresponsible of SMRT, but then that's nothing new.....

Luckily for us, DD hardly pays attention to the trailers at MRT stations cos they are high up and silent. She prefers to chat with us instead. Also, when she is at home and we have the misfortune of watching local TV where we are bombarded by such scenes, even during the airtimes of children's shows, she will mute the TV and shut her eyes. Or change the channel. Or leave her seat after muting the TV, to go do something else meanwhile. Then, she'll ask us to check for her if the "stupid, violent" stuff is over before she returns to her seat.

I'm glad we inculcated this in her from very young, partially by showing her how good non-local alternatives are (via DVD, etc.) and also harshly criticising the insensitivity of local TV airtime planners. Sometimes, if the shows advertised are of bad taste or have little or no value other than to shock and provide low-brow entertainment, we tell her exactly that and explain to her why we think so. Then, we show her better (much, much better) stuff. :wink:
