BANDUNG-Child is a family product. It means anything done by the child in the household cannot be separated from parenting patterns, interaction and communication made by parents. To that end, the Provincial Government (Pemprov) of West Java through Integrated Service Center for Women and Children Empowerment (P2TP2A) will promote Social Awareness.
It was revealed by Chairman of P2TP2A, Netty Prasetyani Heryawan, after opening the event of the 24th National Family Day Celebration Day and National Children's Day of West Java Province Level 2017 at SOR Arcamanik, Bandung, Sunday (30/7/2017)
Communication within the family should be well built by creating an atmosphere of warmth, openness and togetherness in the family. So every problem faced by children must be known by parents.
"Every child's problem can certainly be discussed what is the solution and the way out," she said.
According to her, there are two types of parents who do not have the ability to do a proper and good parenting pattern. Likewise, there are types of children who partly have an introverted character.
"Actually an introverted child with a family should not have a screen," she added.
The problem is, when the children who have that character get parenting patterns from families and parents who do not care and empathize with the problems faced by children.
"So, when the child faces the problem, he feels he has no way out, and these kids feel alone end up choosing an easy and even self-defeating solution," she said.
In addition to parenting solutions for the introverted child's personality management whose built behavior is social awareness. When the child is in the community, then this pressure or depression indicator should be read by the surrounding environment.
"For example, the child from his cheerful origin becomes quiet, from happiness to being sad, this should then be identified by the social environment," she said.
With the momentum of this family and child's day, continued Netty, should be a common momentum. "My son is your son, your son is my son in the context of protection," she asserted.
Netty further explained, anyone who finds a troubled Indonesian child either get a physical or psychological problems should have a common concern to alleviate the child's problems.
"We hope that the gathering of parents and officials of structures at the provincial or central level will further strengthen our commitment to the development of children," she concluded. (MAT)
