The ability to retain the right amount of water is very important to human life. If as adults we acknowledge the importance of water, it is therefore imperative to make sure that children are not denied the right amount of water in their bodies. When children’s bodies lack enough fluid, dehydration will set in. This can lead to some other health complications. Dehydration may occur as a result of diarrhea, vomiting, not having enough water to drink or a combination of these conditions. Unless there are some underlying health reasons, sweating or urinating does not lead to dehydration. Children in comparison to adults are more vulnerable to becoming dehydrated as they are more prone to fluid loss than adults.
