King gives sage advice to youth

His Majesty the King encourages Thai children to apply "knowledge and morality" to build a better society as he offered royal guidance to mark National Children's Day on Jan 11.

The King cares about the future of children and their contributions to the nation. Studies play a key role in shaping their lives, but this is only one side of education, he said.

"All children should keep learning to equip themselves with both knowledge and morality," the King said.

Studies and morality, which constitute a basis for all types of development, are needed for children to grow into "good adults who can develop and create work for themselves and others", according to the royal guidance.

His speech will be published in a National Children's Day booklet, permanent secretary for education Prasoet Bunrueang said yesterday. Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha also emphased unity as a key character of children in this digital age.
