Children – Kids no place to play

For many people lock down looks as individual choice although it is meant to keep everyone safe regardless of race, financial status. It is sad to see kids playing outside at the grave side while parents see them and say nothing as if the lockdown announcement was never important and one thing that is disturbing is the freedom that kids seem exercise by flying kites and the virus does not choose but affect everyone.

Some of the reasons they end up playing outside is there no enough space in their houses and yard, parents do not really spend time with them and parents do not help these kids to understand what is really happening in regard with the virus, parents do not talk about the dangers of these pandemic with their children I think that’s why the children are ignorant as much as parents are ignorant.
