Mrs Chotsirimeteekul wrote on her Facebook page that she and her husband tried to tell their 5-year-old son why he should attend school, but to no avail.

 

These brilliant parenst came up with and idea. They took their son to the streets and joined him in picking plastic and glass bottles to sell for cash.

Mrs Chotsirimeteekul wrote that they walked about 2.2 kilometers and picked up 2 kilograms’ (approx. 4 pounds’) worth of bottles, which earned them 2 baht (approx. US$0.06).

After exchanging the bottles for cash, her son asked her, “Can we take the bus?”

 

“Do you have money? Taking the bus costs 10 baht,” she said.

“No,” he said.

“Then we have to find more bottles to earn more money,” Chotsirimeteekul told him.

And she was surprised when he said: “It’s ok. I’ll walk.”

Later, he told her, “I want an ice cream.”

“It costs 5 baht, do we have enough?” she asked him.

“No, I don’t want it anymore,” he replied.

Chotsirimeteekul later asked him if he was tired.

“I’m so tired, it’s so hot, I want to go home,” he said.

Mrs Chotsirimeteekul uploaded photos of her son picking trash, drenched in sweat and looking so tired on Facebook. She then added that she and her husband will always be there for their son but they want him to value the education he is having.

Mrs Chotsirimeteekul’s Facebook post soon went viral with many Facebook users praising her for her unique approach.

 

“Trust me, one day he’s grown up and successful in life, he’ll understand and thank you for what you gave him today,” one user wrote.

“Great mom!!!! If more moms were to be like you, our society would have been better than today,” another added.

In another video that Mrs Chotsirimeteekul shared, she asked her son, “So do you want to work or go to school?” He responded loudly with, “I want to go to school!”

 

Mrs Chotsirimeteekul’s five year old son will sure take a good lesson back home. He will have to appreciate the sacrifices his parents make to give him a good education.
