MMA Child Media Monitor - Pelican Primary

I joined media monitoring becasue I wanted to see what was happening every day to children's lives to also see if children's rights had been seen to. I have learned so much about children's rights and that understanding the media is not something that can be thrown away. This experience has made me read more newspapers and the articles in them. I tell my family that instead of watching the television they should read newspapers. The best thing has been that we read so many stories and we got to discuss them all and have fun too. I love veing a media monitor. More children should be monitors too so that they can identify their rightsand educate themselves.
