New mother training program at Jomsri Sub-district, Udornthani
One of key problems impacting to the lives of children living in rural villages is that mothers do not raise their kids but move out away to other places. Grandparents are responsible to take care the young children. Thus, these group of children lack of good time to have breastfeeding as well as other good times to be with mothers for appropriate developmental growth. However, it is a household problem it can be seen in general of the rural villages. What we can od it best is about ‘knowledge and awareness raising’ for the grandparents who take care the children in every day lives. They need to know and apply the good nutrition and food for the kids at homes.
Child rearing and taking care of the children by old generation in the past is different from nowadays. However, what it is good it is accepted to continue. What to specifically focus is about new information and changes of nowadays’ societies that impact to the parenting. It is understood that, with the old age they may not be able to have the best parenting practice for the children but at least to ensure good health and close take care of the kids as much as possible they can do it. This will be a protective method to help the children walking within good way to go.
We give diapers, clothes, dolls and toys to the kids and mothers. Word of encouragement is good tool to inspire the mothers to keep good job for their children. Thank you for all donations to help the children and mothers of poor families.
