Deputy Education Minister: Parents vital for child development


BANGKOK – Deputy Education Minister Theerakiat Jareonsettasin has highlighted the role of parents in child development.

At the 4th Think Beyond Learning motivational activity on Saturday, Dr. Theerakiat commented that quality upbringing, particularly exemplary conduct, fosters intellectual growth among children. 

According to Dr. Theerakiat, good parents shouldn’t force their expectations on their children but should give them the freedom to think and express their opinions. As for language learning, parents should spark a desire for learning among their offspring so that they will be persistent in seeking their goals.

The deputy Education Minister also advised parents to remember the saying of HRH Princess Sirindhorn that learning is a lifelong activity.
