        A Lesson To Learn From Ng Yuk Tim's Tragedy
    • Malaysian Association of Social Workers (MASW) president Teoh Ai Hua said parents should keep a lookout on who their children are mingling with, especially those mixing with people who are far older than they are.

      fz.com
    • "If your kid's friends are schoolmates or neighbours of about the same age, that's less worrying. But do be more alert if they are older," said Teoh.

      fz.com
    • “The victim notified family members of her whereabouts, and went out during the day. This all seems normal for an urban teenager’s day to day activity. This is simply unfortunate.”

      However, the social worker warns that young girls should avoid going to private places alone with the opposite sex.

      fz.com
    • "Set the meet up location at a public place instead of their homes. When you are both out of the public eye, it makes the situation even more dangerous."

      Meanwhile, Teoh feels the suspect’s mental condition should be considered, as he could still be calm and composed in front of the victim’s family.
