"Urging parents to play their role in helping to fight crimes, Acting Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said today the strengthening of the family institution will form the best defence against such ills."

"... good parenting is an important factor in keeping children away from it."

"To strengthen the society, we must strengthen the family institution first. Parents cannot leave the task of disciplining their children to schools, the police or others ... they have to take the leading role."

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim
