Thai Parents at the Beach


Recommended Posts

I go to the beach quite often to swim. This is a local beach with a raised sea wall so when you're sitting under the trees you can't see the kids to good. You hardly ever see the parent in the water playing with the kids much less keeping an eye on them. I would never think of letting my kid play in the water without me there and she can swim well. It's the Thai style.

Instead of insinuating that people here are stupid, don´t care and are behaving in an unforgivable way, maybe you should just learn the culture a little bit better.

This isn't kids riding bikes, it's kids playing in the ocean who can't swim and many times playing alone. The ocean can behave in erratic and unforgivable ways. I stand by my comments they are acting in a stupid and unforgivable way. Seems like the upper class are more into playing with the kids.

and yet after countless generations....enough kids manage to survive to perpetuate the race.....I guess it hasn't made a dent

Guess you're not a parent, fair enough.

Look at parents letting their kids ride motor bikes, same same.

 

I rest my case, you see it multiple times every single day.

I guess that doesn't bother me as much with kids riding motorbikes. Perhaps because I rode a mini-bike and a Honda 90 when I was 11 yrs old.

Try to be a parent to your kids and not to other's kids and you'll feel better. They don't need your input

This is an anonymous forum to voice our opinion. I'll continue to think Thai parents are lacking.
