Gender determines choice of illustrations? Hope you aren't gender stereotyping there?

What sort of differences are there?
 
#3 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
I don't understand your question.

If you choose in settings that your child is a boy, then the main character in all stories will be a male and vice versa.
 
#4 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
But the story and the background pictures are the same?
 
#5 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
Yes. There are slightly changes in the text. For example, 'strong boy' or 'beautiful girl.'
 
#6 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
Why can't girls be strong?
Why can't boys be beautiful?
That's what I meant about gender stereotyping...
 
#7 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
Boys do not care about how they look, this is more important for girls. Boys care about leadership and the strength. This is not a stereotype, this is a psychology.
 
#8 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
With the greatest respect.... You're completely wrong.

Telling girls or boys that there are virtues that belong entirely to the opposite gender is psychologicaly damaging.

Girls can be strong and good leaders... Telling them through stories that only boys can be leaders and they should concentrate on brushing their hair and making themselves pretty instead is an awful thing to do.

I'm not for a moment saying you are deliberately trying to do this, I'm sure it's inadvertent... But it is a problem.
 
#9 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
Actually not. In the family a wife and a husband have different roles - these help them build strong relationships. This is an experience of our ancestors. That is why muslims have no problem with a birth rate, they stay close to traditions. Otherwise in Europe and States very high rate of divorces, kids are living in one-parent families. This is damaging kids psyche too much. Girls and boys are very different and this is science. If we will ignore this fact we will continue increase the divorce rate.

I don't think we're going to agree here... And whilst we could argue theology I don't think that's going to be productive.

Suffice it to say that any parent considering installing the app should be aware of the views of the author, as quoted above and decide if they wish to install the application (or not ).
 
#11 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
But why are you thinking that your world outlook is absolutely right? What if you are wrong? Sorry, but you have no right to say who should download our app and who shouldn't. You can read reviews in iOS App Store and see what people think about it. They love our app. By the way, the app really does the work and help kids go to sleep and get rid of nightmares.

This is just your opinion - I respect that. But I do not respect imposition of opinion to other people.
 
#12 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
I'm not imposing my view on anyone... read my last post again... I said parents have the choice to decide one way or another... At no point did I say anyone should do what I said. If you're unsure just re-read my last post.

I don't really read reviews in the IOS app store most people here don't. And the 9 people on the google play store, haven't really expressed much about its content... except for the guy who's just happy that "its finally out"

If you wish to carry on this discussion thats fine.. (I said as much in my last post, and i stand by it, . if you would like me to leave it here, thats OK. ) I've said my piece, and I'm happy to get off the stage/

However if you do want to keep the conversation going with me I can honour that request too.


Hey.. if you just want the last word, thats ok as well. Just state your preference.....
 
#13 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
This is the influence on an opinion. Why not to try the app first and see how it works and then make a conclusion? I referred to iOS version because it has lots of reviews.
 
#14 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
I said.
" any parent considering installing the app should be aware of the views of the author, as quoted above and decide if they wish to install the application (or not )."

In your privacy policy (translated into english... maybe you want to fix that?) it says

"The aim of the fairy tales is to promote in the children characteristics such as respect, care, love, self-confidence and courage. " http://diveomedia.com/privacy-ger


I don't think that parent's being aware of the aim of the app , and the view of the author is ME influencing them (although many people would see a potential contradiction between them) . Especially when I said they should make up their own mind. Don't be so down on yourself, i'm sure some parents would agree with you.



Anyway ... do you want me to install the app and post an honest review?
if so, can you confirm that I have your permission to post images and content from the application?

If you want me to stop replying to your posts in this thread, so that you can have the final word, just let me know.
 
#15 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
You can read the privacy policy in English. I just edited the link: http://diveomedia.com/privacy

What's so bad in good qualities (respect, care, love, self-confidence and courage)? I don't understand. How can that make parents think the app is harmful for kids?

By the way, when the parent read the story he/she can exactly see what the app is all about. This is not hard to understand. I don't like your influence on downloads with 'authors views', when you did not check the app yet. This is not fair. And I am afraid your review will be prejudiced after our conversation.

And please, stop talking about the final word. I am not a kid.
 
#16 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
You can give this app to your buddy who has kids and ask him what he/she thinks.
 
#17 Diveo Media, Dec 13, 2017
Thankyou kindly :) I used Google translate and so appreciate that their translation may not be 100% accurate


There is NOTHING wrong with those qualities... they are fantastic qualities. IAn app that promotes these qualities is to be praised... . as are strength, beauty, courage and leadership skills are great qualities... I want them to be encouraged and allowed for ALL children, regardless of their gender. :D


I'm sorry if your views are secret and they should be hidden from parents.
I think the views of authors are important in children's literature. There are a lot of books that I read growing up that supported ideas that I now regret. Rudyard Kippling for example wrote the Jungle book.. but in some of his writing he's very clear that he considers some people as savages needing to be civilised by the white man. Children's books shouldn't be promoting that. Some of the Titin books, and classics by Enid Blyton also have major flaws. Some may be deliberate, some of which may be inadvertent, some of which are because they were written in a different time and society was different then.


Let me lay out the timeline for this discussion.

You posted the description of your app. Along with the phrase "Please ask any questions if you have some."

I read your description, and liked it. So when I had a small question about it, I had 2 options. I could either go off and install the app and work it all out by myself... or i could ask the author the simple question. I chose the latter. It was quicker and easier and you asked me to!

In the course of a couple of replies, I was concerned about the possibility there was sexism in there, and thought i'd better check if it was, and if it was accidental.

You confirmed it was deliberate.

I expressed my concern and offered to leave the conversation there.

You then became unhappy with my concern. And pointed out I haven't installed the app and maybe i should.

I offered to do so, and asked if you would like me to write an honest review.

Now you're criticizing me for both not writing down what i think about the app after I've used it, and criticizing me for offering to write down what i think about the app after i've used it.

If you don't trust me to write an honest review (or you just don't want me to), that's fine... I actually asked you for permission, and will honour your request either way

Ok.. thats completely my fault, and I apologise if my clumsy choice of words has offended. In no way did mean to imply you were a child. If you felt that,the blame is with me not you. I'm sorry.

I just didn't want you to feel you were being trapped in an argument and pressured to reply by fear of losing face. I'm sure you have a million things you'd rather be doing instead. My offer to walk away and to let you have the last word was so that any perception of loss in the argument would be mine... I won't mention it again... but if you don't want me to reply to this thread , just say the word.

A good idea. When I'm writing down our opinions here, and possibly on her blog, can you confirm we have your full permission to use images and content from your app to illustrate any points we may have?



(by the way, the artwork looks lovely)
 
#19 psionandy, Dec 13, 2017
Yes, you can use screenshots and etc, but please, mention a link to our app.
