KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 13 2010 (Bernama) -- Local universities need to conduct comprehensive studies on rampant baby dumping in the country with a view to check the problem, said the prime minister's wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor.

"If we know why this problem happens, then we'll be in a better position to take appropriate measures to overcome the problem," she said of the increasing number of baby dumping cases.

She was speaking to reporters after talking over the phone with 1Malaysia Putra Club chairman Datuk Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim on the developments of the humanitarian aid mission to Gaza.

Rosmah said parents should also spend more time with their children and be aware of their developments and movements and not leave the responsibility to the school authorities alone.

"Children need to be taught from small. That is why I set up Permata Negara to inculcate noble values among children from small. If they have problems, they can voice their feelings to their teachers or counsellors."

She said with a happy home and school environment, there was no reason for children to seek joy outside including taking drugs and looking for boyfriends.

"Learning should be made fun for them, must make them happy. Don't make them so miserable or give them so much stress."

Rosmah also advised girls not to be taken in by males' persuasion, and the latter not to take advantage of girls.

On Thursday, the Cabinet asked the police to probe baby dumping as attempted murder or murder, and agreed that sterner action should be taken to stop baby dumping.
