Parents urged to take lead role in protecting children from harmful content
Schools are closing for the April holidays and children will be home for the next two weeks.
To this effect, the Kenya Film Classification Board under its consumer advisory function, is appealing to parents and caregivers to be more vigilant and monitor the audio-visual content that their children will be consuming on various platforms, including online, and guide them appropriately.
The Board also advises parents to make use of the diverse parental controls offered on various digital devices and platforms as one of the strategies of monitoring and guiding their children on responsible content consumption.
As a State Agency mandated to regulate the creation, broadcasting, possession, distribution and exhibition of film and broadcast content, the Board remains committed to working with public and private sector agencies on programs aimed at protecting children from exposure to inappropriate content, including online.
Remember: Protecting children from exposure to harmful/adult content is a collective responsibility.
