Sanook reported on an alarming case of a four year old boy who nearly died after being covered in burning gasoline by a seven year old neighbor. 

 

The mother of the four year old has gone to the Paveena Hongsakul Foundation for justice. Paveena has promised action in the "shocking" case. 

 

The boy - named only as "Neung" had been left in the care of a grandparent in Sa Kaew sub-district of Kamphaengphet in Thailand's central north. 

 

But while the grandparent, aged 58, was out at work nearby the four year old was playing with a neighbor aged seven. The older boy lit some gasoline in a soda bottle then threw it over the younger child. 

 

He managed to extinguish the flames by jumping into some water. But he needed to be hospitalized for 24 days.

 

The incident happened in October. 

 

The mother - named as Sirima, 27 - said the first she heard about it was when she went to visit her son at New Year. The grandparent had not mentioned it. 

 

She took the child back into her own care. She has a new husband now. 

 

She said that the parents of the other boy had refused to properly accept responsibility for what their son had done and did not visit him in hospital. All they did was pay 200 baht. 

 

Paveena said the case was shocking especially in that it involved such young children. 

 

She is now in contact with police and local authorities and compensation is being discussed. Child welfare is also on board in the case. 

 

The foundation has paid some money to the parent of the injured child, Paveena said. 

 

Thaivisa notes that her foundation is often the last resort of cases involving women and children where local authorities and police fail to take appropriate action.

He doesn't look like an ordinary four year old.

Parenting is something many need to take more seriously...

Thais leaving their children to be raised by their grand parents is their idea of parenting. There is a generation of young Thais who’s heads are completely messed up because of it

Thai also should learn how to parent since they have never ever seen a good example of it. No matter how much money they have. just dump the kid at grandma and leave...And grandma might dump the kid elsewhere if it's noisy or nasty.
