I think  that keeping track of children can be difficult to be sure,
but I find that if I know just who I'm supposed to  be  hanging out
with, I can  call them out by name, have conversations with  them, and
 just kind of  be a   presence in this manner.  Also, keeping  track
of  kids  can be done  in much an easier manner, if you are kind of in
a closed in space where there are only so many   places they can go,
you know they can't get lost and they can't get hurt.
  I hope this helps in some way.\
