Abstract

It was believed that more highly educated mothers could take care of their children better than less educated mothers.  Other factors involved the growth development of children during infant and preschool years.  Two villages in Khon Kaen provinces were studied and compared.  The target groups were children below five years and their mothers.  Only mothers in a studied village were given health education.  The result showed that children in a studied village were slightly more developed and healthier than children in a controlled village.  However, when the mothers education levels were compared, data showed that mothers with lower education could look after their children better than those in a higher education group.  This happened in both villages.  It might be that lower educated mothers had more time for their children and tended to follow the local health worker’s teaching.  In contrast the mothers in the higher educated group had more chance to work outside and left children with their cousins.  There fore, this might effect children’s growth development and health.
