Question by This is not here: What is the closest English equivalent you can think of to the following Egyptian proverb?
يعملوها الكبار و يوقعوا فيها الصغار
The best I could come up with (not a proverb at all) was “children have to pay for adults’ mistakes”, but it doesn’t seem to really capture it at all. I need this asap please before I leave.
Please and thanks
