Mak dia cakap
" Suka hati aku lah nak post apa, anak aku suka hati aku, aku yang jaga dia bodoh !! "
Pihak @JKMHQ tak boleh amik tindakan ke pada parent baby nie? pic.twitter.com/ttk0MuGX8D
The video shows that one person giving vape to a toddler while the other person is videoing for "Insta Story".
When other netizens voiced their concern about the incident, the mother replied, "it is up to me what content I'm posting. If you do not like it, unfollow me. You do not need to comment on it. It is my child; I do what I like. I'm the one that is taking care of him, idiot!"
Netizens are demanding the Department of Social Welfare Malaysia look into this matter.
It is irresponsible of the parent to do so unto the toddler.
According to the CDC, most vape or e-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive and can harm adolescent brain development, which affects their control, attention, learning, mood and impulse control.
The vape can contain other harmful chemical and unknown substances, which might lead to serious lung disease or other diseases.
If you see irresponsible parents like above, do report them to the authority.
