Who Are Responsible of Childern During Flood? During raining season, there have been many cases of childrens deaths due to their life-threatening hobby of bathing in flood. These children had mistakenly made a decision to have a blast during flood. Perhaps, this is their way of handling flood. One of the pivotal reasons that leads to the life-threatening hobby is the lacking of parents monitoring and interfering of their children activities. Instead of taking great care of their children especially during flood, the parents are more occupied with their possessions that are destroyed by flood. Little so the parents realize that the greatest possession on Earth is indeed their own flesh and blood. Likewise, the children have insufficient knowledge about the dangers of flood. Apart from spreading diseases, flood could also cost their lives. For example, the act of bathing in flood could simply take their lives away because the strong current of water could wash away their bodies in a split second. If the children are aware of this, the chance of them to avoid the occurrence of this incident is high. In addition, neighbours play an important role too. They are obliged to not only watch their own children but the neighbours children too. Some neighbours have the tendencies to close their eyes on the issue of taking care of others children. Consequently, the innocent children lives are on the edge of unpredictable danger that could occur anytime. In conclusion, everyone must be responsible towards children especially during flood. Children are unaware of the danger that they may face when fooling around during flood. Thus, it is the onus of pointing out the danger is on the shoulder of adults.
