    I was just down at my local casual restaurant for dinner...pad thai gai, sai goong (65 baht with 4 decent sized prawns added)....sitting at a table next to me were 2 Thai kids...the boy about 12 and the girl maybe a little younger...they were still dressed in school uniforms and were very quiet and polite but friendly, with both smiling at me and the staff....they had 3 dishes between them with rice and when they got up to pay the lad was the one dealing out the money....

    not sure whether they were brother and sister or this was a (junior) date..but they rode off together on a pink scoopy afterwards 555

    That is something I've always noted in Thailand. The Thai youth are more polite than what I see hanging around Canadian malls and "hang outs". And, Thai teenagers seem more willing to interact with older strangers like myself. That would never happen in Canada.

    These young men offered my friend, Mike and I a beer when we were coming back from a hike up Doi Sutthep. On a hot day that beer tasted better than most I've had.

    They play their games at school and that's it.
    You almost never see kids in parks playing sports recreational.
    And there doesn't seem to be a "culture" around it.
    Whereas when I played sports it was sort of a lifestyle
    Mate there are scouts "dib dib dob dob" in LOS you will find one of his teachers is a scout master . To keep busy . Just a suggestion.

    I don't really understand your post....

    But he is busy enough, too busy at times......
    That never seems to be an issue with Thai school kids, they certainly keep them busy

    Oh, so you actually meant the boy scouts 555
    As I said, idleness or needing things to occupy his time is not an issue....
    He hasn't had spare time in years!
    He really is always busy with sportz, school trips and all that.
    But his grandmother would just want him to do that and nothing else.....
    As any 16yr old........He wants a social life

    And, I would agree with the lad. It takes a balance of everything to make a well rounded adult. Eventually, he will discover what he wants to do and what career to take. Much better to enjoy what you are doing than hating your job.

    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    Ao has been all over that countless times with him. That is her major concern.
    He is a bit girl obsessed.....

    New Year's Eve......He wanted to stay home while Ao is in Suphan and rest of family in Petchaburi...

    She wasn't allowing that and I said, maybe you let a 13-14yr old stay home but not 15-17yr olds 5555
