I can not teach my tomboy to go to the pot. I have already tried a lot, and a couple of days ago I decided to find and show him some educational films or cartoons on this topic. Without thinking, I went to youtube.
Baby on the pot
Typing in the search box the phrase baby on the pot, I got a lot of rollers. There is only one teaching among them – an advertisement in which it was announced that there was no sense to accustom children to the pot before a year and a half.
The rest is amateur videos shot and uploaded to the network by caring parents. Numerous real children sit on pots and do their own business.
I especially remember the girl singing on the pot, and then declaring moms, I poked.
No less good is also the well-known video clip about the boy, to whom a loving father broke into the toilet with a camera, and the kid began to chase him away: dad, it stinks.
What is called, I wanted a training video – I got it. But the question is: what do moms and dads think about posting these clips on the world review?
Pride or shame?
Do they understand that millions of Internet users will cackle over their child? That, quite possibly, when he grows up and becomes a schoolboy, he cannot avoid offensive nicknames.
That, after all, the world wide web is full of perverts and pedophiles, who are not averse to admiring the image of a gopopopy child.
Of course, every parent is sure that he filmed a unique funny video with his brilliant child in the lead role, but is it not worth leaving this video for home viewing?
While the baby can not express a point of view, it is quite simple to use it as you like. Parents are happy: their videos are being watched, their children will be recognized, comments are left to them – what is not a moment of glory for?
Would adults agree to be filmed on the toilet and shown to the whole world? Definitely not. So the child will not be happy when he grows up and learns about his fleeting popularity.
In addition to the toilet, on youtube there are many other videos with children. Children sleep funny, dance, laugh, play, talk. There are really funny shots, nice, kind.
Maybe this is not bad when parents want to show everyone a video where their child shows wonders of intelligence and dexterity.
Maybe not bad … but I definitely would not publish a video with my son on youtube for at least several reasons.
Because while he can not speak, and can not give me consent to this.
Because then different people will see him – good and not so, with whom in reality I would not like to acquaint my child.
Because I believe that the irresistible desire to show your child on the Internet is a hidden intention to become famous for yourself.
