Lift Supoj – Ying Narawan sending Nong Proud to International School
At this moment, their beloved child “Nong Proud” is 3 years old and is about to enter kindergarten. By the time her parents, “Lift Supoj” and “Ying Narawan” came to an agreement on her schooling, they were working up a sweat. In the end, the biggest person in the house holding the cards is none other than the wife, who made the decision their daughter off to international school. The reason being at the present time the language English is really important. We see them both at the opening of pocket book “Pro Nong…”
How is Nong Proud?
Lift: She’s 3 years old now. She’s about to attend school in August.
Ying: About her schooling, we had a huge debate on it for quite long time, on how best to educate her. At first I discuss with Lift, having the fear of sending her to international school, because international kids have super high confidence. They’re really westernized. We’re afraid that she might get her Thai culture. And knowing a lot through experience, I’m afraid she might not be put together. The guys are players, so we’re possessive of our daughter (smiles). But let’s just conclude we’ve come to an agreement that we’re going to send her to international school, because no matter what the English language is important.
Lift: Right now she’s entering AEC, we’re trying best to make her distinguish that it’s not a problem for her to speak English at all times at school, but when she returns home, she has to be Thai. She has to know cultures and traditions. She has to be courteous, respectful, modest and humble.
Lift: But we’re still worried because she’s still very young. When she goes to school, we have to send her off and pick her up. We have to allocate her our time to accommodate that.
Ying: We have a schedule made up, who is responsible for what date. With all the news coming out, we don’t dare to send her off on a school bus. We’re not brave enough to send her off with the driver either. We’re most confident if we take care of her ourselves.
Do you have plans to send her overseas for her studies?
Lift: We’re better off to wait for the future. Right now we’re going to look into what route she likes. After we learn of that, we can support her decision.
Ying: Right now there seems to be an indication she likes concerts. Every morning she gets up, she watches the concert.
Are you going to push her into the entertainment industry?
Lift: No. She’s just behaving like a child. We want her to concentrate the hardest on her education. It’s the prime importance.
How about your plans for another child?
Lift: Honestly, in my heart, I feel that one child is enough.
Ying: We’re probably going to have just the one. Also Lift was an only child; it’s always been like that way. I asked him how he felt as an only child, and he said he wasn’t lonely. His parents loved and gave him comfort and warmth. So we felt that it’s not important how many kids we have, what’s important is we keep the child company so that she feels no loneliness.
