Researchers warn of dangers of dubbed dramas on Kurdish children13/08/2012 17:21
ERBIL, Aug. 13 (AKnews) - A number of researchers, social workers and psychologists in the Kurdistan Region have warned of the risk of dubbed television dramas on the mental health of children and the future of the region.
A statement from the group said: "Dubbed dramas, especially South Korean ones, that are presented on local and satellite channels that broadcast in the region include scenes of violence, killing and bloodshed, and such dramas have a remarkable audience in the region.
"The TV channels that present such dramas are responsible for the risks that threaten the future generations in the region.
"Because of the incomplete cognitive and mental health aspects of the children, they may try to implement what they see and this may threaten their life or at least make them violent."
The statement noted that "guidance can be given before the presentation of such drama and identify the minimum age of the viewers, and present such programs after 12:00am".
