    I'm not a teacher.

    Hi feby ayumi,

    If I were you I would write the following sentence:

    The children should have waited their mother outside

    Let us see who will cast the first stone at me.

    Regards,

    V.

    Could you explain more about what you mean by original sentence? Do you mean you need to rephrase this sentence another way? Do you need to make the mother the subject instead of the children?

    For example:The mother should wait outside for her children.

    I don't know about the meaning of original sentence,,
    may be its about real sentence.
    is it right ??

    I agree with vill's opinion.

    If you mean that you agree with Vil's sentence:

    The children should have waited their mother outside,
    I'm afraid it doesn't make sense.

    Susan has given you a better answer.
