A panel discussion will be conducted with parents, family counselors, psychologists or social workers to better understand the obstacles and challenges of rehabilitating and instilling positive change in problem youths.
On the Edge aims is to educate youths and keep families informed about the dangers of criminal or undesirable activities that youth might get into. The series also hopes to deter future offenders and provide useful information for troubled youths seeking help. Every episode consists of a dramatised re-enactment and a panel discussion.
