KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 15 2010 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, said many parents tended to neglect the most basic requirement in children's upbringing, in pursuit of providing a more secure and stable life for the family.

She said lack of attention from parents, particularly those with careers, would have various negative impacts on the lives of their children when they grow up.

"I believe that poor understanding of a child's psychology and lack of communication are some of the factors that cause a breakdown in children's upbringing.

"This could perhaps lead to the infectious "baby dumping syndrome" and promiscuity among teenagers, who may be below the legal marriage age," she said at the opening of the Malaysian Paediatric Association's (MPA) 32nd Congress, on Friday.

Rosmah also urged the community to find more effective strategies and workable solutions to improve children's lives.

She said it was time for Malaysia to look into having an advisory committee comprising the relevant parties, so that every strategy and action could be consolidated as an integral part of efforts to uplift children's lives, future and well-being.

Rosmah said that having enormous professional experience in children's psychology, coupled with the passion to make every child's life enjoyable and fulfilled, MPA could extend its expertise and collaborate with the goverment through is agencies in making a difference to children's lives.

"As the patron of PERMATA Negara, I welcome the professional insights and assistance of MPA to help enhance our efforts to produce quality human capital, which is a vital asset to our country.

"I believe that, working together among like-minded collaborators would not only provide benefits, but serve to assist one another in achieving the shared and common goals in children's welfare.

"Let our efforts be the successful benchmark for others to emulate," she said.

The congress themed "Ambulatory Paediatrics" which began today, discusses nutrition, early childhood development and H1N1.
