children see, children do

The following video was released at least five years ago, and was produced for Child Protection Week by NAPCAN, a child protection agency in Australia.

It is very powerful visually and may disturb some people.

      Hi Eliz

      At the time this ad came out, I was appalled at some behaviour of parents at a children’s soccer match. The parents were heckling the children on the other team and screaming at the children on their own team. They were a team of 5 to 6 year-olds. I said at the time that it looked like child abuse. So, I sent a complaint email to the relevant soccer club and copied in this ad as reinforcement! The soccer club did take action.

        Well that is good to know that they responded… unfortunately, it is an every day event in many other places… Glad you took action. No reason for the abuse at all!.
        BTW, I have given you a Versatile Blogger award. Stop by to collect it! 🙂

    I want to see the video but can’t get the link to work. Any tips?

    Never mind–watched the video. Wow. Everyone could use a view each day.

    We all know this (or should). Then we forget when we have kids that they’re watching everything we do and hanging on to everything we say.
    Very powerful 1 1/2 minute reminder. Thanks for sharing.

    Great ad. It could do with a few screenings over here too.
