Picture: Thai Rath

 

Thai Rath reported on a three year old boy with Covid who was getting down alone from a school bus "song thaew".

 

They said the picture and comforting words of his gran tugged at Thai heartstrings. 

 

The boy's grandmother - who runs the school transport - had taken her grandson to Loei Hospital in the north east of Thailand after he felt poorly. After a test she took him home.

 

Three hours later the test result came in that he had Covid. So it was back to the hospital. 

 

As a rescue foundation met them on the Loei - Dan Sai Road in Muang district the little chap's gran told him to "fight on".

Not sure what is more pathetic; 

A 3 year old being sent to school,

      or the poor little tacker getting COVID. I will take internet authority and assume he got it at school.

They are starting to vax every child from 5 up now here so my cynical side doesn't trust this story, Thai media has been quite ruthless with projecting the government's project fear programme.

(disclamier before I get shouted down as a nutter, I am double jabbed)

The main focus I have reading this story is a three year old child getting Covid . Which is possible.  I do hope he recovers without any complications  I wish him well.  That should be the focus.  But I don’t see that. Just debating on his schooling or if it’s government trying to deceive people.

The silliness continues.  Unless needing, simply treat symptoms, if any, at home.

 

On the 'school' part, agree, 3 yr old is silly.  My daughter did that, until I took her out of.  Sort of went like this:

Go to school, come home sick

Stay home till better, 1 week

Back to school, 1 week, come home sick

Stay home till better, 1 week

AND REPEAT  ... enough ... home schooled.

 

She can sing, drink milk & sleep at home, and I don't have to worry about her getting snake bit ...

... yea, rural village school and had a couple incidents of snakes on the grounds.

 

Home schooled her to learn the alphabet & numbers, then she was admitted to private school at age 6, and started in 2nd grade, 2nd semester, after testing & 1 month trial period.  Graduated Uni last year.  Avoided the whole kindergarten (3yrs of) thing.

When I was 3, I thoroughly enjoyed going to infants school, being with all the other kids, going home with water colour on my face from the days fun in the classroom.

But then again, back then, I suppose we were not treated like babies year after year, learning was much more fun....🥳

Damn rich kids ... at 3,  playing in dirt, and the neighbor would bring us home, as the alky parents didn't have a clue where we were.  And quite the busy street in front of the house 😬

No rich kids where I came from, and I/we also played in the dirt when we were not having fun at infants school. Best of both worlds....

The school was probably pre-school or nursery as we call them in the West. Didn't you know that? 🤐

Exactly that - its healthy for young children to have the opportunity to socialise with each other outside of parental supervision at a ‘safe’ pre-school, nursery or kindergarten..... it does wonder for their confidence, communication and social skills......  

 

Some folk seem to hear the word school and assume calculus and homework !!! 

 

Our son loved his school (Kindergarten)...
