Once I have gone to my relative's house to see him as his old mother expired. The body was outside. All are sitting around. But a small boy may be of 2 years age was weeping and asking his mother to give him something to eat. She took away that boy from that place and managed.
The elders should understand the situation and manage the children accordingly. Otherwise, if we try to punish the children, they will become further violent.
Knowledge is power.
