Eye on giving children a head start


REFERRING to the report “Wan Azizah to civil servants: Serve govt of the day or else...” (The Star, June 22), we applaud the government’s decision to look into the wellbeing of children under the “Children’s Well-being Roadmap”.

Taking a leaf from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, this strategy addresses the fundamental needs of children, ranging from food and clothing to shelter, before moving on to other levels including social belonging, and eventually to self-actualisation which would be achieved by providing them with a good education and opportunities to spread their wings and make their nation proud.
