Not every child can express verbally what is in his or her heart, but parents can learn a lot through playing or reading a book with their child. While parents can do this at home, Cheryl Shanahan, an early childhood therapist at the Southside Family Health Centre, says it's sometimes necessary to consult a professional if a child needs guidance in development or to overcome an obstacle.

Thai tourist recalls her sex slavery ordeal in Hong Kong

When Nong packed her bags for a trip to Hong Kong in 2009, she knew she would miss her three young children and husband in Thailand but felt a short break would do her good. But just hours after she arrived in the city, Nong (not her real name) was plunged into a nightmare that involved kidnap, rape, and threats to her family back home.

You couldn't pay most people in Hong Kong to cut someone else's ear hairs or toenails. But there is one woman who has been performing this service for the elderly and hospital patients for the past 27 years - for free. Jenny Law Chun-heung, 62, transforms the quiet halls of Grantham Hospital in Wong Chuk Hang into a hair salon every second Thursday of the month.
