This book explains why there has been a dramatic decline in Thai'd labour' numbers. Today, the position of Thai children has never been better. Their lives differ greatly from those of their grandparents, parents, and even older siblings. They are better educated and fewer child labourers or child prostitutes, as a proportion of the total population, than at any other time. Changes to the lives of Thai children have taken place over generations, particularly since the late 1980s. At that time, the onset of an economic boom, combined with fertility declines, resulted in many children pursuing their studies rather than working in the rice fields or factories. This change has and will continue to result in major benefits to Thai society.
