    Children end up being criminals.

    "Tom says if he ever has children, he won't advice or guide his children correctly. Some people don't guide their children correctly and their children end up being criminals."

    Please check.

    Advise. "Advise" is a verb. "Advice" is a noun.

    Re: Children end up being criminals.

    Is it really Tom's intention to let his children become criminals?

    Try to recast what you have written to avoid writing 'children' four times in two sentences.

    Re: Children end up being criminals.

    You're still saying that Tom won't advise his children correctly. Are you sure he is going to risk having them end up being criminals?

    I agree there's no coherence between those sentences.

    Does he want them to be criminals?

    NOT A TEACHER


    Well, then, Tufguy, how about something like:

    "Tom says that if he ever has children, he will let them run wild. He could not care less if they become a menace to society."
