Parental Advisory In Kuwait
I discovered in the Kuwaiti home the definition of explicit material is obscured. They think the only thing that needs censoring is any physical/sexual content, and that applies to Hollywood related movies only.
What about our khaleegi mosalsalat. The subjects they talk about, the filth they portray. True there isn't any kissing scenes going on, but that doesn't mean it should be watched by children!!
The girls and I were talking about a mosalsal by Fajer Alse3eed. We all know how they go. None of us watch much Arabic TV, but what surprised me was that their little brothers and sisters watch ALL the khaleeji mosalsalat regardless of subject matter.
I'm sorry but a six and seven year old should not watch series about girls running away with their boyfriends/girlfriends. Or husbands beating up wives, or young men stealing and snorting. They shouldn't be watching stories about bastard children taking revenge on their fathers or about rape.
Hell even 16 and 17 year old shouldn't watch this crap.
Parents, what are you thinking?!
Just because its on KTV, doesn't mean its appropriate for everyone to watch!
And what about the TV stations that broadcast these series all year long, should they have some kind of warning about the content?
I think this is a very serious matter and every parent should be more careful about what they expose their children to.
