Parents’ personal relations with children can outdo the ‘Momo’ challenge



By Rose de la Cruz


In an age of too many distractions both parents and children have been ironically distanced by technology with each other —instead of being linked together.


And the void between them has caused heinous apps like Momo Challenge to infiltrate the minds of the young—which initially look like a harmless game that eventually could command them to kill others or themselves. Such deaths (suicides) have infiltrated the Philippines in recent weeks.

3 in 5 children suffer from domestic violence



By Rose de la Cruz


Three in five (60 percent) children experience some form of physical violence at home with one or two children experiencing corporal punishment (spanking or beating). About 4.6 percent led to their being hospitalized.


These are based on the National Baseline Study on Violence Against Children of the Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC), which noted the lifetime prevalence of psychological violence during childhood at 59.2 percent, which means that 3 of 5 children have been verbally abused, threatened and/or abandoned by their parents/guardians.
