What difference did you notice between the reaction of the adults and the children when faced with danger?

The reaction of the children was much different from that of the adults. The adults were hopeful in the beginning. But the children were hopeful even when all the adults had lost hope. Whenever there was a strain of hopefulness, the children made sure that the elders were fully supported by them emotionally and mentally. They never lost hope.
