Won't somebody please think of the children!

Yeah except Duo won't permit "of" here...

It's an accepted answer. What did you put exactly?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Baba7249

"Think of the children". Which admittedly in this context is only the second best solution.

It's an accepted translation so I don't know what happened – and I can't add it since it's already in there. There can be glitches sometimes I guess.

On the mobile version there is no option for "of," that might be what they meant.

är "Tänk om barnen" fel?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KimWidman

Yes, in Swedish the construction is "tänka någonting".

That sentence translates to "think if the children."
