“The ages have huge differences so we have to follow the rules that have been set. There is a big difference at 11-12 years old. The film is intended for children over the age of 12 and should not be shown. It matters and there is an illegality here. But there is another issue. Sex education, which starts from the cradle. Most minors are educated according to research, through pornography and this is not good. I’ve seen the movie, it’s an award-winning movie and belongs in the children’s library,” he said.
“We cannot throw away a material without educating the children. Also, not all children are the same in the classroom. The teacher should ask. We do not show such material to children without proper preparation” write down.
According to Anna Kandaraki, how a parent will react affects the child’s reaction.

“If a preliminary work has been done then there will be no problem”
THE Matina Pagonis made her own comment, emphasizing that everything starts with the family.
“As far as the school is concerned, the teacher who shows such a film has to do with how he will explain it. If a pre-processing has been done then there will be no problem. It is not so much a matter for a child to see such a film, if it is explained,” said the president of EINAP.
“Parents are afraid and startled easily. They should explain in their own way. It’s not something tragic to show such a film” he pointed out in closing.
