“Actually there are also other benefits of the games available. But if it comes to the point of addiction and cause harmful effects such as blindness, then the law is haram,” said Chairman of LBMNU Lampung, KH Munawir.
Responding to this phenomenon, Secretary of the Nahdlatul Ulama Health Institute (LKNU) Dr. Citra Fitri Agustina said that there are several steps to prevent mental disorders due to the device.
First, parental control over their children. “Control is a major part of prevention from parents,” he said some time ago.
The videos they watch and the games they play must be under parental supervision. If it is not intended for his age, then the attitude must be taken so that his child does not access the application in the device.
Second, parents must also maintain parenting for their children. Third, parents must also not be permissive, succumbing to their children out of pity. “” Yes, it’s been given, it’s a pity, it can’t be like that, “he said.
Furthermore, Citra also said that parents cannot facilitate their children in accessing devices. The personal cell phones of parents and siblings, for example, must be given a password so they have difficulty accessing them.
The doctor who graduated from the University of Indonesia also reminded parents to put limits on their children. For example, in one day it should be only one or two hours he can use his cellphone.
If necessary, he continued, a contract must be made that the children and their parents must obey together. This also teaches them to be disciplined. However, Citra reminded parents to be consistent in the contract.
That is, parents must not violate themselves which can adversely affect their children. With this contract, if children can fulfill it, parents can reward them in a variety of ways.
“If you only use a cellphone for one hour a week, then you will be given a sticker that is accumulated in a certain amount to get a certain prize,” he said.
