And most of them cut their heads a ritual known as Kama Zani or cutting their chests with blade known as Blade Matam , or scourging the back known as zanjir mata.

Shia kids also walk on ire on the Khandak ritual known as Ak Ka Matam.

And the blood letting rituals happen predominantly on 10 Moharam known as Ashura , 40 day of Moharam known as Chehlum and the last day of two month eight day mourning period known as Athvi.

Shia kids also do the same Moharam rituals during 21 Ramzan Martrdom of Imam Ali .

Mostly parents dont tell their kids anything, and this is the only time he has control over his actions..
