    Managing upsetting news in the media for children

    The recent events that have taken place in different parts of Turkey have not only affected us as adults, but also affect our children. Especially, when children see such events on television or social media, its impact on them can be quite negative. According to research, the exposure to disturbing and violent images can have long-lasting impacts on children. Therefore, this brief article is prepared in order to explain what you can do as parents.

    • First of all, children who watch TV, read journals and have social media accounts should be monitored regularly because it is particularly essential for parents to learn what kind of information that their child can reach. Also, if necessary, the security settings can be activated.
    • Parents should avoid talking about these events among themselves when their kids are in earshot. Even though children do not seem to be listening to the adults, they do listen and try to interpret what they have heard by themselves, often resulting in an overwhelming emotional experience.
    • If the children witness these kind of conversations or the disturbing images, it is really important for the parents to encourage their children to talk about this issue and ask their opinions and feelings.
    • Moreover, it is also recommended that parents should listen to their children’s concerns, fears without being judgmental and then, give the necessary explanations. These explanations should be simple, reassuring and concrete.
    • In addition, it is really important for children to know the fact that they can talk about their concerns and questions with parents, teachers and school counsellors at any time.
    • Young children communicate their concerns through their drawings and play activities. For this reason, the parents can monitor and ask them to explain if they observe something unusual.
    • Also, parents are key assessors of warning signs, such as regressive reactions like thumb sucking, bedwetting, excessive clinging; physiological problems like loss of appetite, vomiting, sleep disturbances, headaches; social and emotional problems like withdrawal from friends, school refusal, irritability etc. If parents observe these signs, they should contact teachers and school counsellors.

    Counselling Service

    No report is more valuable than your kid!

    A report is a feedback given to student and parent as a document in which performance of the student throughout the academic year is evaluated and graded.

    When your kid shows you his/her report, remember the statements below can be helpful for you to maintain healthy communication with your kid.

    • What does a report mean to you?
      The answer that you give to this question will determine your approach to your child. Is the report a document evaluating your parenthood? Are the grades in the report actually the grades for your parenting skills? While answering these questions, if the words like “yes”, “kind of” etc. pass through your mind, it would be quite difficult for you to control your anger and give constructive reactions to your kid.
    • Do you think that the report is the evaluation of your kid?
      For the parents who perceive the reports as documents evaluating their kid’s personality or capability, the reports having lower grades can cause parental reactions harmful for their kid’s self-concept.
    • Do you consider the system responsible for the lower grades in the report?
      If we want to change some negative things, we need to analyze their causes carefully. Putting all the blame on an outside factor like school, teacher, education system etc. will not help you to solve the problem and increase the grades of your kid in the future. In order to help your kid to accept the responsibility of the lower grades, it is important to discuss calmly what he/she could do differently and what his/her plan is for the next semester. Otherwise, your kid will never feel it necessary to do a self-evaluation for his/her actions since there will be always someone or something to point the finger at.

    Practical recommendations

    Ask your kid what he thinks and feels about his report.

    Provide him opportunity to disclose his feelings and opinions and listen to him attentively.

    Talk about your own feelings and thoughts about the report by not using negative words or exaggerated positive words about personality or capabilities of your kid.

    Evaluation of the report should be done with the child. If there are lower grades, their reasons should be discussed. If you are satisfied with all of the grades, verbal appreciation rather than expensive gifts should be preferred as rewards in order to raise an internally motivated individual.
