Children, who are regarded to be the future nation-builders, are going astray.Gone are the times when budsspend their spare time playing outdoors — hop-scotch, or even invent something to be well enjoyed and let others partake too. These days we witness and even compete when a child who was supposed to reside with his or her mother smoke things which carry pernicious substances.Not only children get their health deteriorated but also has inviting repercussions too.
