Research on the single quasi-experiment method has investigated the effects of a program of parents' perceptions’ program for enhancing abilities and expectations to self-efficacy in preventing pre-school children with obesity whose age as 2-5-years-old at the Child Development Demonstration Center in Thailand was administered. Bandura's Conceptual Framework for Self-Efficacy administration with a sample size of 14 pre-school children and their parents were modified. Using the program consisting of media, manual, video and storytelling data were collected by using the Child Weight Recording Form (WRF); the 10-item Questionnaire on Self-Efficacy Program (QSEP), the 16-Week Weight Scale Measurement (WSM), the 22-item Questionnaire on Parents' Efficacy Ability (QPEA), and the 46-item Questionnaire on Parental Expectations (QPE) were assessed. Most of the questionnaires are valid and reliable. The leader's parents’ processes were provided on knowledge, demonstration, experimentation, and organized activities. Statistically significant was analyzed with interference statistics. The mean scores of parents' perceptions of obesity between after post-experiment were higher than the pre-tested experiment. The weighting profile was plotted and graphical depiction as the line linear equation indicates of y = - 0.084x + 20.79, differentiated significantly.
