A heartwarming video of a Thai 5th grader bottle-feeding her younger sister has captured the hearts of millions in Thailand.

The 20-second clip, now viral, features a young student nicknamed Green diligently writing in her exercise book with her right hand while cradling her one year old sister in her left arm. The adorable toddler appears content and engaged, sipping from her milk bottle and gazing up at her big sister with admiration.

The touching scene unfolds at Ban Klong Kaem Cham School in Prachin Buri, where a compassionate teacher with the TikTok handle @Yingggzz, provided some context in the video’s description.

“She is the eldest sister in her family. Her mum is busy running errands. This is better than having to miss school to look after your sister, right?
