Abstract: The specific objectives of the study were to: (1) develop and translate into the Thai language materials for selected lessons on family planning and population education for use by home economics extension workers; (2) obtain information concerning the useability and applicability of the six lesson materials from a group of students enrolled in home economics and faculty members at Kasetsart University, Bangkok, Thailand; (3) revise the materials on the basis of information gained from the students and faculty. The objectives for the six lessons were: 1. The participants will realize the quality of care given to children is related to the family size. 2. The participants will become aware of the relationship between family size and family well-being. 3. The participants will define the meaning of overpopulated. 4. The participants will recognize the relationship between family size and adequacy of material resources. 5. The participants will realize that every woman has a chance to choose and/or improve family life. 6. The participants will understand the meaning of family planning and the effects it has on the family.
