While there are parents who don’t like the idea of exposing their children to video games and would even go as far as prohibiting them from using gadgets, 36-year-old actress Meryll Soriano allows her son Elijah to have some screen time. This is something the hands-on mom openly shared on the recent vlog post of their YouTube channel “The Curious Two.”
“Marami akong mga parents na encounter na they don’t want their kids playing on the iPad. Hindi silang pwedeng maglaro ng this and like that.” she noted.
“Ako naman, pag weekdays, he (Elijah) is not allowed. But on the weekends, allowed naman siya kasi feeling ko naman, this is the generation now. So I would want him to be part of that. I don’t want to hinder his growth din on the technological aspect or what is given sa panahon ngayon, di ba?” the actress reasoned.
Meryll added that while she may not be strict with her son’s gadget use, she wants to know what he is playing. “Gusto ko makita kung violent ba siya. At least, I get to see also what he’s playing, kung papayagan ko pa ba siya na maglaro ng Fortnite or not.”
Her way of knowing consists of understanding the rules of the game.
