    buy them some water because they are very thirsty.

    Tom's mother and father asked Tom to buy them some water because they are very thirsty.

    Are 'them' and 'they' natural in the above senence?

    Re: buy them some water because they are very thirsty.

    They're fine but I would use "... because they were thirsty". That fits with "asked" in the first part.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
