Angola: Singer Warns of Television Danger for Children

Luanda — The infantile musician Sonia Antonio warned Monday in Luanda of the danger of television on children's education, judging by the inappropriate contents of many programmes issued to the children.

Sonia Antonio who was speaking to Angop on the 11 commitments toward the child, regretted the fact that many parents still trust television as a way to provide education to their children.

She stressed that many parents stripped of the responsibility of caring for children, as they regard the TV as Electronic Babysitter, and stop monitoring the programmes their children often watch.

The musician noted that the proportion of leisure for children is an obligation both of authorities and parents.
