Find time to read with your child.

Reading movies will stimulate your child's brain development, and it also helps increase family closeness.


Let your child build relationships with friends and people around.

Building relationships is a good foundation for future life as it helps children live happily in society by being aware of disciplines, sharing, and emotion control for a good attitude in life.


Be a role model.

Parents should always be a good role model for their children because children will automatically absorb the behaviors that adults show, rather than any verbal teaching.


Compliment your child.

When your child does good things or the right things, you should complement and support them to let them know how much they are appreciated.


Observe your child's behavior at home and at school.

Observe your child's behavior if one day he/she seems depressed and not as cheerful as before. You should talk to them about their problems, and make them feel relaxed and feel that they always have you beside.

Expenses in the beginning

In the beginning of having a baby, there will be expenses related to prenatal care and childbirth expenses. Such expenses can be between 50,000 - 100,000 Baht over a period of approximately 9 months or more.


Expenses for newborn items

Newborns items must be prepared very well, such as baby clothes, diapers, milk and milk warmers, cribs, bathing equipment and baby food. They would cost around 30,000 - 50,000 Baht approximately, and there will be monthly expenses of around 5,000 - 10,000 Baht. However, the expenses may vary, depending on the care of each family.


Expenses for baby food

Baby food is more special than adults', so you must plan to set aside approximately 3,000 - 5,000 Baht per month, excluding medical expenses when sick. Without health insurance, medical expenses can be very high, including vaccine expenses for your child from birth until reaching 12 years old.


Expenses for babysitters

If you don’t have time to take care of your children as you have to go to work and you need a babysitter, you should set aside approximately 5,000 - 10,000 Baht per month in order to cover all expenses, depending on each family.


Expenses for educations

The tuition is a very necessary thing. During kindergarten until the end of primary school, your child must study for at least 9 years. For total expenses, if studying at a government school, they will not cost much, but at a private school, you have to pay more for the tuitions and even more in both primary and secondary school. The average annual tuition fee for 9 years is around 20,000 - 50,000 Baht. Total for 9 - 10 years is around 200,000 - 500,000 Baht (not including school supplies which depend on the selected school and not including personal expenses).


Expenses for health insurance

Providing health insurance for your children helps diversify the risk. Even it doesn't help you avoid illnesses, but the health insurance can help pay medical expenses for covered diseases so that you can save more money because, as mentioned, the medical expenses nowadays are fairly high.
