    Could you help me to find out the mistake in below question sentence?

    Could you help me to find out the mistake in below question sentence?
    'The social games of children help to prepair themselves for their adult roles'
    Perhaps, it is wrong at themselves.
    I would like to know your opinion!
    Thanks

    Not a teacher.

    "prepair" should be corrected to "prepare" and I wonder what "adult roles'"'s '(apostrophe) means. It seems unnecessary.

    So...that means "The social games of children help to prepare themselves for their adult roles." is fine.
    And I agree.

    Psst, keannu, it's not an apostrophe, but the closing single quotation mark

    Games cannot prepare themselves for anything.

    Please give your own answer first. It's not right to sit back and let others provide the answer for you.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Suggestion for a better title:

    The social games of children.
