This may be a very common phenomenon, when parents are busy with work, they often search a children’s video playlist at random on the digital device and hand it over to their children to watch alone.
But have you ever imagined that someone would upload harmful content after disguised? These harmful content are often wrapped in the most popular animated content of the moment among children, or mysterious elements that can arouse a child’s intense curiosity, but they output violent, bloody or pornographic values, and even induce children to imitate them, so that irreparable consequences occur frequently.
Young children, who haven’t established a clear sense of what is right or wrong, are curious and energetic to explore, often subconsciously imitate what they see and hear.
