My Children Want To Play Under The Rain

... But I said no, "the rain is not strong enough for you to play," I told them. Its raining again in our place but though the clouds are so heavy and dark but the rain is not heavy for the children to play. I told them, "wait till the rain get heavy." Its so happen the rain never get strong. I had a good memory of my childhood playing under the rain when I was just a small kid. I had fun and really enjoy with other kids running, playing and shouting. I let my children too. Many times they have been like that. I think its important for them to experience this and enjoy the moment. Its so happen, the rain now is not too strong for children to play.

Here it is different. Most of the time we don't allow children to play under the rain. It may be wrong, but the elders keep saying that it will be easy for the children to catch a cold if they play under the rain. Besides, it can be dangerous if it rains with the thunders.

Yeah, I think its different tradition. We let children play under the rain for them to enjoy their children. Then we also believe if we allow them, their body resistance against cold and flue and other respiratory diseases will get stronger.

I also remember when I played in the rain as a kid. Those were fun times. Children today play video games and they need to have more outdoor activities.

The good thing living in the rural place is this, kids can still enjoy playing outdoor, climbing the trees for fruits, swimming in the river and catch some crabs, among others.
