    I know your level of English! Why did you think it might be '12 child'?

    Re: child vs children

    in my native language it can be used this way. It can be used as a description in its singular form. The problem is that I still think using my native language and there are moments of weaknesses when I am tired where things get mixed up
    Thanks again David
