After a scandal of several injured kids even a death caused by acting like the wrestler from WWE, Indonesia had banned WWE show from airing. Before banned, the TV broadcaster airing WWE set the show time on 10 pm. Well, in my opinion, the TV station was responsible for this. Some kids were still not sleeping on 10 pm. But why their parents let them watch it? We know this is an adult entertainment. And WWE had told that the moves shouldn't be tried by unexperiences. But they're still kids - they want to learn everything. They like to try anything that they watch on TV. So what's really wrong? Thanks for your opinion.

of course we all must responsible for that. especially they parents! I'm Indonesian, I was already watch that wrestling show since 1995 for satelite TV but I never hear problem by that show. only on 2006 the problems come out. this is not TV fault but their parents fault parents should always tell they son which TV program they can see and which one for mature.

I see. But haven't you realized that kids would imitate almost everything they watch on T? Should we watch our son every he/she watches TV? This could be so hard but I hope parents could give a point to their kids what should they do and don't. Thanks.

The guilty party WAS NOT WWE, neither TC Broadcaster. It's parents' responsibility to keep an eye for their (normally) children, especially above 10 p.m. in the night. If it was at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, then I would strongly blame the TV Broadcaster, but the fact was WWE was on TV at 10 in the night. Comparing to another country, there was no action such as banning the WWE to be broadcasted on TV. Maybe we have to be more responsible with everything we watch and everything we do. Nobody wants to be blamed.
