(MENAFN - Arab News) At a time when human susceptibilities are being exploited by the corporate market, Wisdom Jubail conducted an "Effective Parenting" session for selected parents in Jubail. Around 40 parents were selected on the basis of an aptitude test to participate in the program which highlighted the importance of Islamic, scientific and psychological lessons in raising children.
The session discussed mechanisms to raise children effectively. The main concern of the expatriate parents was their children's addiction to the various entertainment media channels such as television, Internet, texting, chatting, etc. while they are busy at work. The forum noted that children are introduced to the entertainment industry by the parents themselves.
The program highlighted the impact of entertainment on children's inability to think reasonably, creatively and learn well owing to the distracting nature of the media. Most parents complained tat their children could not memorize their lessons.

The forum felt that the general apathy of the society toward this growing phenomenon is a cause for concern.
Parents need to guide their children on the path to wisdom but they are not quite sure how. The forum noted that morality and ethics have been seriously undermined due to the media.
The forum also deplored the trend by politicians and a section of the media to glorify homosexuality which is against nature and condemned those trying to overturn the Supreme Court's ruling of article 377 which upholds the family institution. The parents lauded the Supreme Court for its timely intervention when the country's frail moral fabric is continuously under attack.
The forum pledged to phase out the menace of television from their homes and exercise more control on Internet usage.
Dr. Peer Muhammed, educational technologist and professor at Jubail Industrial College led the session.
