MTRCB SUCCESSFULLY HELD ITS FAMILY AND CHILD SUMMIT
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board

Philippines Diliman. The summit was attended by almost 200
participating families, children and youth,
educators and formators,
MTRCB officers and staff,
network and TV production
representatives, and other
individuals from various units
and organizations. MTRCB
Chairperson Eugenio “Toto”
Villareal opened the summit
by emphasizing on the family
as the cradle of the life of a person, where one is
formed in values and in virtue.
The first speaker for the event was CCP Chairperson of the Board, Ms. Emily Abrera, who set
the tone by saying that children are easily impressionable. Parents
should then be
very careful and
should guide and
teach their
children which
programs are
appropriate and
safe for them to Dr. Honey Carandang and Ms. Emily Abrera
watch.
The next speaker was renowned child psychologist, Dr. Ma. Lourdes “Honey” Carandang.
Dr. Carandang strongly remarked that children
before adolescence easily absorb and imitate what
they see on television. As for adolescents,
Dr. Carandang said that they prefer real characters in media and look for heroes as role models.
Also on hand were celebrity couples Oyo Boy
Sotto and Kristine Hermosa, Julius Babao and
Tin-tin Bersola and Lander Vera Perez and Regine

echoed that parents are the primary educators of
their children, and hence they have to be more active in knowing, understanding and applying the
MTRCB ratings and classification system.
The Break-out Groups
The event was concluded by the signing of
Memorandum of Agreement by and among
MTRCB, NCCT, Anak TV, KBP, the television
networks and other stakeholders and a closing
“Tatay, Nanay watch na me… wer na u?”
message from former MTRCB Chairperson and
Speaker-Facilitator: Mr. Tibbs & Mrs. Vangie Evalle
Senator Grace Poe. Acknowledging the MTRCB’s
dedication and commitment to age-appropriate
entertainment, Senator Poe thanked Chairperson
Toto Villareal and the whole Board for continuing
the paradigm shift introduced during her term, i.e.
instead of being a “censor,” the MTRCB has
became an enabler for both the television
networks and producers, on the one hand, in terms
of self-regulation and audience-sensitivity and the
“Bakit Kailangang Mag TV
audience on the other, (particularly the family) in
Patrol nang 24 Oras”
regard to viewer empowerment especially as
Speaker-Facilitator:
regards the MTRCB ratings and classification system as well as its other initiatives and advocacies.
Mr. Mag Cruz Hatol
“Kung may isyu, Ipaglaban mo…”
