Controlling Children Using Computer

Computer and internet are useful as well as powerful. Information about health and safe usage of computer and Internet, especially for children, should be owned by each family. Computer connected to internet is powerful way to socialize with others. It can be good but also bad effect. Recently we hear a lot of children get the advantage of social networking sites but we often see the news about the disadvantage of it for children. Healthy and safety of computer and Internet usage should continue to be campaigned.

The role of parent in assisting and directing children in using computer is very necessary. Installation of software monitor such as key logger which has function to watch and note all activities relating to keyboard usage is helpful but not enough to protect children from potential harms. Children tend to hide what they have done in front of the computer to their parent. They see that all of they have done are their privacy and no one may know.

We can not prevent children from using computer because it is multi functional. However, many parents worry about what their kids do in front of the computer; whether they are doing homework or even just playing games. Or spending all time to surf internet which is the materials do not fit with his age. There is a tendency, especially teenagers, want to become acquainted with many strangers out side. The lack parental supervision of children’s activities is likely to pose a potential danger to them. So parental monitor against the use of computers needs to be done from time to time.

Menikah Di Usia Muda

Sumber Gambar : pixabay.com

Saat ini, saya akan menceritakan hal yang membuat saya merasa terpaksa sapu-sapu dada sambil tepuk jidat sendiri.

Diawal tahun ini, saya melihat anak-anak muda cantik memutuskan menikah di usia 18 tahun dengan seorang pria yang lebih tua setahun dengan dirinya, yang satunya bercerita secara langsung akan segera menikah dan sekarang usianya 19 tahun, begitu juga dengan calon suaminya, dan yang satunya lagi sudah putus sekolah dan sudah menikah beberapa hari lalu diusia 17 tahun, serta suaminya berusia 18 tahun.

Saya bertanya kepada seorang diantara mereka “mengapa kamu ingin menikah di usia sangat muda?” “takut dosa dan sudah cinta” itu jawabnya.

Sumber Gambar : pixabay.com

Untuk memastikan jawaban anak tersebut, saya sempat menanyakannya ulang pertanyaan yang sama dan ternyata jawabannya sama.

Hal yang membuat saya tidak habis berfikir adalah mengapa menikah dengan alasan itu? Hati saya bertanya “ Apakah anak tersebut kurang membaca?, kurang bergaul atau minimal kurang menonton atau mendengar berita tentang pernikahan di usia dini? bukankah penyebab utama perceraian karena menikah diusia dini?”

Saya juga berfikir apakah orangtua mereka kurang memberikan pemahaman, atau hal tersebut muncul karena mereka sudah memiliki komitmen yang kuat? Well, pertanyaan terakhir ini membuat saya ragu dan mengiring hati saya berfikir negatif, yaitu karena mereka bodoh. (maaf)

Tidak bisa dipungkiri bahwa tingkat kebodohan dalam hal menetukan tahap-tahap kehidupan masih minim, ditambah lagi dengan pemikiran beberapa orangtua yang juga minim akan pengetahuan. Pemikiran “asal anak mereka sudah menikah tanggung jawab mereka selesai”.

Ada beberapa orangtua mengatakan bahwa banyak anak, banyak rezeki. Salah satu hal ini yang membuat mereka merasa tak bersalah jika memberikan lampu hijau kepada anak mereka untuk segera menikah di usia muda.

Pada kenyataannya, tidak sedikit mereka yang menikah diusia muda hidup menderita karena kesusahan dalam hal ekonomi. Belum lagi karena mereka merasa jenuh dengan rutinitas ibu dan kepala rumah tangga yang begitu saja.

Juga, tentang mengurus anak, terkadang anak dititipkan kepada orangtua yang kadang membuat orangtua merasa lelah dengan kegiatan yang berulang-ulang mereka lakukan.

Parahnya jika harus tinggal serumah dengan orangtua, dimana dalam satu rumah dihuni lebih dari beberapa keluarga. Hal seperti ini yang sering menimbulkan perselisihan, hingga menimbulkan konflik di dalam keluarga.

Apapun dengan yang sudah saya amati, hal yang membuat saya tidak bisa berkata-kata adalah jawaban atas pertanyaan saya, dimana semua pasangan ini menjawab mereka menikah karena cinta. Tentang pekerjaan akan dicari bersama-sama, akan berjuang dari awal bersama-sama.

Melihat hal ini, saya merasa semakin tidak heran jika jumlah kemiskinan terus meningkat di negara ini. Sepertinya edukasi akan pernikahan di sekolah, di tempat ibadah atau kegiatan organisasi perlu ditingkatkan untuk menekan jumlah pernikahan di usia muda.

Saya berharap kedepan pemerintah memikirkan tentang undang-undang pernikahan bagi pasangan yang belum memiliki pekerjaan tetap, selain mengurangi konflik dalam keluarga juga hal ini menurut saya dapat mengurangi jumlah kemiskinan.

Memang, tak ada jaminan bahwa menikah di usia matang atau menikah pada saat sudah dewasa, atau  pada saat sudah memiliki pekerjaan hubungan pernikahan akan langgeng, aman dan bahagia. Tentu tidak, namun minimal dalam keadaan apapun, setiap pribadi mampu membiayai hidup sendiri, hingga tidak terjerumus dalam kemiskinan yang dapat menimbulkan penyakit masyarakat atau penyakit sosial.

Saya berdoa kepada ketiga anak muda tersebut agar selalu hidup  bersama pasangan masing-masing dan mampu melewati badai bersama-sama, serta bisa membantah hal-hal yang telah saya amati tentang pernikahan dini dengan bukti pernikahan mereka kelak.

Anak muda lainnya, hendaknya tidak mudah memutuskan untuk menikah muda, jika belum yah minimal memiliki pekerjaan tetap yang bisa dipegang seumur hidup.

Nikmatilah masa muda kalian dan tetap semangat.

Do you know What is Memo?

Where do you usually find it?. Well, with the new technology, you can’t find memo easily at home or at the office, because people use mobile phone to send messages, but have you ever thought that memo was so important and also it still important?

So, what is Memo? Ok, Memo or memorandum is a short communication used within an organization. It often used as a tool to share short information or message.

Actually, it’s not only used in an organization, but also people can use everywhere, specially at home. When your parents are out, traditionally, they will leave a memo on the table, door or under your door, but if they have credit/pulse, they will send you short message service (SMS).

Malaria Mewarnai Akhir Tahunku.

“ A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”

Saya berharap ucapan ini tidak terlambat untuk kita semuanya, bukankah hari Natal tidak hanya tanggal 25 Desember? tetapi semangat natal hendaknya selalu ada di hati, sehingga damai sejaterah selalu ada dalam hidup kita.

Saya akan menjawab beberapa pertanyaan tentang kegiatan atau peristiwa apa yang telah terjadi hingga dalam waktu  sebulan lamanya, saya tidak mempost apapun di blog saya.

Tapi terlebih dahulu izinkan saya mengucapkan turut berduka atas semua korban Pesawat Sriwijaya Air SJ182. Saya berdoa, semua arwah para korban diterima di sisi Tuhan Yang Maha Esa dan semua keluarga diberikan ketabahan. Amin.

Pada tanggal 10 Desember 2020 adalah hari terakhir dimana saya mempost artikel yang berjudul “Conditional Sentences” atau kerap dikenal sebagai kalimat pengandaian, dimana, saya menjelaskan pengertian kalimat pengandaian serta membubuhi beberapa contoh pengandaian.

Setelah itu, rencananya saya akan mempost soal-soal kalimat pengandaian, namun karena selalu antusias saya akan hari Natal, membuat saya menunda untuk membuat artikel saat itu.

Awal rencana. Saya hanya butuh  18 hari untuk fokus merayakan Natal dan meninggalkan aktivitas di blog saya sejenak, namun karena hal tak terduga membuat saya tidak bisa menulis apapun di blog saya.

Yang membuat saya demikian adalah saya sakit. Sejak 28 Desember 2020, setelah balik dari liburan di Tomohon Sulawesi Utara, saya merasa ada yang tidak beres dengan tubuh saya.

Saya merasa menggigil, demam, batuk dan pusing. Hal itu sama sekali tidak serta-merta membuat saya berfikir bahwa saya kena Covid-19, masalahnya karena sakit tersebut bukanlah sakit yang asing bagi saya.

Malam itu saya sudah merasa bahwa saya sakit Malaria, namun karena satu dan lain hal, saya tidak bisa mengecek darah untuk memastikan saya Malaria.

Malam, Pada tangga 31 Desember 2020, saya diantar untuk berobat dan disana saya bertemu dengan seorang dokter yang begitu teliti. Beliau mengecek kondisi saya dan mengatakan amandel sebelah kanan bengkak serta saya menderita alergi dingin. Alergi ini yang menyebabkan saya batuk.

Namun karena fasilitas saat itu tidak lengkap, ditambah lagi dengan banyak laboratorium swasta yang tutup karena akhir tahun, membuat dokter tidak bisa memberikan obat Malaria.

Hal ini terus saya upayakan hingga sehari sebelum balik ke Jayapura.

Pada tanggal 05 Januari 2021, sore hari setiba dari berlibur, saya langsung pergi ke salah satu dokter praktek dan mengecek darah. Feeling saya benar, saya sakit Malaria. Malaria tersiana plus satu. Saat itu, tanpa fikir panjang, dokter langsung memberikan obat dan meminta saya untuk beristrahat full.

Setiba di rumah saya berdoa dan bersyukur bahwa selama hampir satu minggu ternyata saya juga sakit Malaria selain yang telah didiagnosa dokter sebelumnya, namun hal lain yang membuat saya bersyukur bahwa saya tetap mempunyai kemampuan untuk mengerjakan apapun, bahkan tidak seperti sakit Malari yang saya rasakan dulu. Sakit kali ini, saya merasa tidak muntah dan tidak mengalami pusing berat. Saya bersyukur betapa Tuhan menyanyangi saya.

Hal yang sedikit menggelitik hati saya adalah mengapa ada nyamuk Malaria di Manado. Selama ini, hampir semua orang tau bahwa hanya di Papua dan NTT, mengapa ada disana?

Apakah karena faktor cuaca, faktor alam atau karena lingkungan yang tidak bersih? Apapun itu, hal ini membuat saya berfikir bahwa penyakit yang dikenal ada beberapa daerah saja ternyata bisa muncul di daerah lain tanpa ada batas.

Sekarang, saya merasa hampir pulih, hanya lidah  yang masih terasa pahit dan batuk. Namun hal ini tidak menghentikan saya untuk melaksanakan tugas dan tanggung jawab saya sebagai tenaga pendidik.

Penyakit seyogyanya tidak dijadikan alasan untuk berleha-leha. Masih banyak orang yang menderita penyakit berat dari saya, namun semangat mereka tidak padam. Tanggung jawab diatas segalanya, karena melaksanakan pekerjaan menunjukkan siapa diri kita.

Yuk, tetap semangat.
