Bro TS, how true!
Unfortunately, parents too need to be “corrected” — especially if they are still “youthful”. He heh he. Nevertheless, to be fair to them — at least many of them — they have probably, contributed to making their children better than them, Alhamdu li Allah, and thanks to their parents and their teachers too. Well, together we make up the education system — the parents, the teachers, and not least, the experts.
Refreshing to note that we are now onto the solutions to the problems although we must continue to understand the problems and their causes!
I now vote for better incentives for teachers who handle civics lessons, students’ discipline and counselling, and their motivation.

Takkan ibu bapa sole tanggongjawab buat anak je? After that we pass the to the M o E? I do not think our poor teachers is up to this BIG job! Ini anak dua tiga orang pun susah jaga, ni nak suruh dema jaga 40 orang budak2 every year for only one year and expect a miracle?

The fact that many citizens are no longer respectful of laws — and law enforcers — is certainly a worthy CHALLENGE to take up for the others especially those who are capable of ENGINEERING the desired change for the better! We ought to look for catalytic actions that can deliver “quick” results, for instance, civics lessons, classes and teaching status need to be reviewed and reengineered. Who could champion the cause and drive the national actions? None other than the minister of education!

A young person’s mindset and attitude reflects:-
1) Parental guidance (home upbringing)
2) School/tertiary education
3) Peers’ influence
4) Societal environment,
in that order!
Just look at how we ADULTS ‘respect’ the laws of the road,the environment,drug abuse, fiduciary duties,ethical behaviour,etc,etc!

And common thinking among the public is that you have to ‘pau’ the relevant parties in order to get business or things done. It is sad when even among the young ones who are beginning in business entertain similiar thoughts. As for respect for elders, those in authority and the law, the eleven years of schooling does not seem to be effective in instilling the desired values. What really has gone wrong with our society. Is it partly due to the society at large and its leadership that may not be exemplary to the younger generations. We proclaimed ‘ Leadership by example’. For all we know, we may not have been providing good examples for the young to follow. As the Malay saying goes, ‘ Bila guru kencing berdiri, murid akan kencing berlari’. Wallahua’lam.

Many years ago I did mentioned to senior police officer that the
policemen on the street should not “pau” the students as this will
have a long impact in their lives.
My kids (and many others) always think the policemen trying to “pau”
whenever they stopped the traffic offenders along the road.
A sorry state of youth mindset.

KUALA TERENGGANU: Violent crimes committed by youths are on the increase and have reached a worrying level, said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar.
“We are witnessing the emergence of a new trend, the younger generation are showing disrespect and they could not care less about the law.
“They have no regard for people in authority, including police officers, teachers or even doctors,” he said after visiting two injured policemen at Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital here yesterday.
Const Arizan Mohamad, 24, suffered fractures on his collarbone and both legs after he was rammed by youths on a motorcyle while manning a roadblock at Jalan Masjid Abidin here on Sept 16.
Ismail said Arizan’s case was not an isolated one as many other policemen were injured while carrying out their duties and most of the offenders were youths.
Showing concern: Ismail giving words of encouragement to Arizan at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital in Kuala Terengganu yesterday. Looking on is Terengganu police chief Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan (right).
“We have to work on preventive measures and stop young people from committing more wrongdoings.
“They don’t have the basic value in terms of respect for the law and this can be detrimental to the country,” he added.
During a visit to the Terengganu police contingent headquarters here, Ismail said the use of new media would ensure that the fight against crime will be more effective.
He added that the police needed to change its approach, such as forming a Facebook account and a media centre at Bukit Aman, which will help the authorities in its crime-fighting efforts.
“The police Facebook page has received an overwhelming response from the people, who provided us with information on crime.
“We will also work hard to foster closer ties with the public through the formation of more Rakan Cop schemes and also through sports and social clubs.
“We have to change our approach to policing accordingly to the pace of development, hence we need more friends that is surely the members of the public and corporate companies who could provide us salient information on crime happenings in their respective areas,” he said.
Ismail said the police has also started posting crime-prevention tips and statistics on areas with high crime indexes using the social networking site.
