Thai media 77kaoded reported on the case of a seven year old boy who claims that his mother and step father beat him up.

 

"Meo" is now in care as social services and other organisations coordinate what to do next. 

 

The mother has been charged with assault and illegal detention.

 

The case came to light after Thawatchai or "Bobby", 38, the boy's father went to the That Phanom police.

 

He is a photographer of tourists at the shrine in the north eastern Thai city of Nakhon Phanom. 

 

His son had been found battered and bruised at a temple where Bobby's former wife - they split up about 5 years ago - works as a lottery seller.

 

She is Sudarat aged 27.

The father claimed the injuries were her doing and that of her new husband. The boy was taken into care after the incident on February 3rd that the father said was caused by beating with a heavy object and a coat hanger. 

 

The media said that Meo was feeling better now but had told friends that it was his mum and step dad. 

 

Saengdao Aree said that she got involved after the Society Development and Human Security office was brought in followinbg contact from the One Stop Crisis Center. 

 

She said that assessments would take place to determine where the boy could be best looked after - perhaps with the biological father or his grandfather with whom he used to live. 

 

She said that child abuse in families was a frequent occurrence and that those concerned about it could call the 1300 hotline 24/7.

Sadly i have to curb my language on here, but i would dearly love to get hold of them 2 disgusting pr++ks and gave them a damn good hiding.

No child for whatever reason should be treated like that, never.🤬

they need the same treatment back

but as my wife pointed out when she saw this, nothing will happen to the parents here. The kid will just grow up hating them, so no support for them as they get old.

It takes a good deal of courage to survive this abuse.

Been there and survived into being a loving surrogate father to my son.

My advice to the abused kid is stay strong in your mind. As not everyone is an AH.

Interesting, and a valid point in Thai and other cultures (including here in Cambodia) compared to cultures where " Government Social Security" is expected. I wonder how many parents, grand parents etc. are being neglected by formally abused off-spring?

Im sorry to see that, unfortunately that kid will never forget that no matter how long he lives.

I dont think Thailand has the facilities to deal with things like this.

Sickening what they can do to an innocent child.

Considering that domestic violence is placed on a pedestal and venerated as the norm on Thai TV programming especially in Lakhon / Thai soap operas and made for TV movies - well really?  What do you expect.  Beating the living hell out of weaker people seems to be learned behavior that is passed down as a Thai societal and cultural norm from generation to generation.  Adult "teachers" and parents preying on children; men preying on women; gangs of tech schools students singling out one student from a rival school and maiming them for life in a group beat-down; the young preying on the elderly; those with "higher" perceived status preying of those with "lower" perceived status.  It's pretty sad and probably close to impossible to end without a cultural awakening.  And what strong moral authority has the power to change the culture?

It's an interesting point.

 

I have known several Thai's who's father abandoned them as children, yet in later life if they bump into their father ( or search for him ) they welcome him back into their life with open arms as if they've had the best upbringing ever.......i find this peculiar.

 

I can't comment if the people i know were abused or not.

I have witnessed worse than this in Thailand.

A few years back, I saw a young Lad of about 6 who was pushed out of one of the sidecar things attached to a Motorcycle by his Father ( I assume ). The lads leg was stuck inside the metal framework of this thing, and the Father just rode off dragging the Lad along the Road.

I ran over and stopped the Father and then pushed him of the Motorcycle ( he was as drunk as a Pig ) before releasing the Boy and making sure he was OK.

The Father then came at me with a Machete. Lucky he was so drunk that I was able to plant a good uppercut right on his Chin and KO him.

My wife was screaming at me not to get involved, but I could not stand by and watch this happen to this young Boy at the hands of this drunken Pig.

I dont know what happened in the aftermath, as I thought it prudent to make an Exit, but I later heard that the Locals called the Police and had him arrested, and told the Police he fell over and knocked himself out.
