It looks like the government is really committed to looking after the wellbeing of school children.
In its latest effort, the Women, Family and Community Development Ministry has launched a video campaign on YouTube to create awareness on sexual harassment among preschoolers.

Minister Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail told Bernama she hopes that the videos, targeted at children between the ages of three to four, will reach 150,000 views by the end of the year.
According to the report, Dr Wan Azizah said the five sets of one-minute videos, produced with the help of Malaysians Against Pornography and Google, were the first of its kind in Malaysia.
Dr Wan Azizah said most parents today allow their children to browse YouTube not only for educational purposes, but also as a source of interactive education.
Nevertheless, she warned parents have to monitor their children's screen time, adding that the ministry recommends ‘no screen time’ or access to children below two-years-old.
