    Thai/Farang Kids

    Do Thai/farang kids have a problem in there schools days.

    My son seems to be going through some troubles at his school, he comes back and tells me, Kids are saying,things such as you fathers not Thai so he's no good, normal stuff kids do, hes a loving kid inside home, we do all the normal stuff Father/Son do.

    When we go to school for one of there open days, theres a distance he makes between us, i sit him down and say its ok,just not listen to the stuff.

    Do any of your kids get the Thai Farang shit.?

    When i look back now to my own schooldays, when coloured kids where coming to our school,it was pretty hard for them to fit in, My sons 8yrs now is it just a phase here in Thailand or does it get worse as they get into high school.?

    Yes, they do. Even at 4 years old.

    Maybe go completely racist on him and inform him that the Thai kids are jealous because his dad has intelligence, money and a man sized dick.

    Another thing to try and do is to send him to a school that has a higher percentage of similar kids. I know that's not always easy though.

    My son has problems with thai friends.
    If he goes out they all say "Farang Pay" when the bill arrives.
    He only goes out with luek kreung and farangs now.

    Yes they do, to much so. Its even worse when they go outside of school. Combine that with a shit education and you get a hefty tuition fee for international schools even on scholarship. I know that for sure. One reason we found out the scholarship was given was during the crucial interview stage they both talked about in totally different context about being called Luk Farung. Even though they had a silly mattayom haircut and spoke Central Thai better than most of their classmates.

    Know it is not easy at all marmers. But it is so damn worth it. My twins learn more in a week studying for the IGCSE's than they would in an entire term in Mor 3.

    I know I had them in one of the best EP programs around and they excelled, but it was still in no way challenging enough, and on the Thai side all questions were still being stifled.

    My kids are called Luk Farang all the time. It drove them nuts. But its over now. They are getting a British education now. Since Aug 15th they have not been called farung at the new school. They are thriving and learning more in a week studying for their IGCSE's than in months at a Thai school.

    This doesn't appear to be much of a problem here in the Philippines. My twins are starting High School next year in the High School section of De La Salle University. There are some other kids of mixed parentage, but not many. As my kids speak native Tagalog as well as English, and, as with many mixed kids, look more Asian than American, the only thing which really draws much attention is their notably non-Filipino surname, but most of their classmates think that is neat. So, virtually no problems as yet. The fact that they are both Karate black belts could also possibly be a factor....

    So far so good for my lad. Not mentioned anything anyway. He's 7 going on 25 though so he probably lets it all go over his head. I'll keep an eye on him though, don't want him to start stockpiling automatic weapons and home made explosives.

    My kids don't seem to have any problems at all. but there is a high proportion of Chinese / Thai girls at an all girl school. the relevance is that these Chinese girls are usually fat and unattractive compared with the Thai kids.

    My boy is in an "International" school here in Chiang Mai and he seems to have no problems (that he speaks of) and has some friends. He did have a fight but hey, what 10 year old boys don't? No idea of the reason for that though.

    At home I am concerned he doesn't want to go out and play with any of the other kids, just stays at home. I tell him to go out on his bike and play with the other kids, maybe he feels he doesn't fit in....

    Honestly, if things work out for me like I am hoping in the next few months I want to take him out to Australia to finish his school.

    kids will always pick up on something different to try to make fun of

    some of the boys call my daughter "farang" at nursery school; she ignores them and now they don't bother any more

    she really enjoys her school

    Yeah, and ask him why all women and hi-sos want to be white?

    I am not aware that my children have had any rascist problems maybe because they look more farang then Thai.

    Having strong Aussie genes goes a long way.

    Resentful Thai teachers are probably the ringleaders.

    from what i can make out its only in school he has the problem, i would really like him to change schools though were like a 1hrs 15mins away from Ubon, he always says the school in BKK was much better, could possibly be worth moving nearer to a city.

    Unfortunately though we have to take care of wifes mother.

    Kids are saying,things such as you fathers not Thai so he's no good,
    I remember reading my neice's kindergarten Thai book a few years ago when I was learning to read Thai, it was full of pages about how simply great Thai people are.

    Page after page of stuff like 'Khon Thai bpen keng keng'. (Thai people are very strong) each repeated about 10 times.

    They're simply conditioned since birth that they are superior and greater than others.

    A lot of the deep lying resentment and hate for Westerners here is the glaring reality that that is simply not the case, and their inability to deal with it.

    Our girls have been privately tutored [with our direction and input] from the begininning. Not so much because of the Luk Kreung issues, mostly deriving from the social-educational system and curriculum that I find suppressed and vacant of challange.

    Aside from that, their peers and friends are largely Khmer/Thai and have no real problems as problems as such - they've also taken on the dominate skin tone of their Mother.....as they don't appear to be Luk Kreung like others might be.

    Wow

    Didn't know so many of you had zebra kids running around. Of all the Zebras iv'e seen, they look mainly white with very suttle Thai features.

    The average person in the west might not even notice a zebra

    I have to wonder about that cuz why do most Thai malls have adds with white people in them. You walk into an outlet mall and all the posters you see are of white people. Never Thai.

    Ah...yes, the contradiction.
    It's perfectly alright for them to dream about being white and the longing for references thereof.

    Yes i think they just long to be White , with money spent on creem skin whiteners and the adds on the TV are all of white skin people even when they are Thai .
    The soaps have a lot of white Luek Kreung in them as well , they have a fasination with white even can not understand why Farang lay in the sun .
    The workers on the land rap up well so they dont get too sun tand and if they get too brown the people know that they are farmars which seems to be a stigma.
