Go Back To Basics, Rosmah Tells Parents | 20/02/2010

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 20 2010 (Bernama) -- Parents should go back to basics by passing on to their children the tradition of being respectful and thankful of others.

Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, wife of the prime minister, said out of love for their children, parents should not leave the responsibility of teaching their children entirely to schools.

"I am taking a serious view on this matter, why youths nowadays do not say thank you, do not feel they are indebted or do not have respect for others.

"We need to have an awareness campaign, a programme teaching children to respect others. We may have to relive the tradition where our mothers would pinch us if we do not say 'thank you'.

"Nowadays, mothers no longer pinch their children, if their children make mistakes, they will not be reprimanded," she said on the Hello Malaysia programme over BernamaTV at Wisma Bernama here Friday night.

On the PERMATA Pintar programme, she said about 400 smart children attended a summer camp held at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia recently.

"Under the PERMATA Seni programme, a children concert involving an orchestra, a choir and traditional performances will be held at the end of the year," she added.
