RELATABLE: Don't post if your child says no to online content
SHAH ALAM - Get your child's consent before posting content online, experts say as a way to ensure they would do the same in the future.
Entrepreneur Inora Noor Zainy, a mother of two, shared her experience of her seven-year-old daughter who sometimes refused to have her pictures taken and posted on social media.
She said parents need to respect their child’s decisions.
She further said that neglecting the importance of consent will pass a wrong signal to the child "that it is fine to do the same to others."
“When my daughter was younger it was fine for us to take her pictures but now she is seven and does not want to take photos sometimes.
“When she said no, we would not do so,” she said during Relatable talk show held live at Karangkraf’s Complex, here.
The show was moderated by Izza Izzelan. Other panelists were Clinical Psychologist Shazeema Mashood Shah and Media and Information Warefare Studies Senior Lecturer Dr Noor Nirwandy Mat Nordin.
They spoke on the long-term psychological impact and the danger of parents posting content.
Inora, an active Instagram user under noorinora has 113,000 followers.
She further said she would normally talk to her daughter about what is good content in a hope that she would do the same in the future.
