Street Children

Street Children

I was walking at in the city garden of city when suddenly someone catch grabbed my leg and said "please help me" and then left let it go.

At that moment, I wondered why are there are street children. what's reason that reach them up in the street? How did they end up on the street? Why don't they have a home? Where are their parents? How can we treat/solve this problem?

- I'm very poor at creating questions, so I wrote that. Thanks! (Weer Welar, you can practice your question writing in a comment below. What other questions were in your mind at that moment?)

How do we help them

I am a child myself and I dislike looking at kids on the street. How can we help them get a home???

I think that those kids shouldn't be living in the street that they should have a home.

Writing Question
by: leeraay


I don't understand some words in this story:

(1) "let it go" refer to what?

(2) If I change the sentence "I wondered why are there are street children" to "I wondered why there are street children". Is it correct? Thanks.

Hi Lee, To answer your first question, "let it go" means to release something. For example. Imagine that you are holding a bag in your hand. Then you open your fingers and the bag falls to the floor. You let it go. You let the bag go. :) Make sense?

2) You are correct! Actually, I need to mention that there are two ways to say this sentence.

"I wondered, why are there are street children?" or "I wondered why there are street children".

Notice the comma in the first option? That allows you to ask the question directly. In the second option you need to switch the verb order.
