Mind Challenge - Family Crossing River


I read this while surfing and found it interesting ..

Hard River Crossing

A family has to cross the river. On one side of the river are a mom and 2 daughters, dad and 2 sons, the maid and the dog. There is a boat only big enough to hold 2 people (counting the dog as 1 person). Only the adults are capable of operating the boat. Everyone has to get to the other side, without anything bad happening.


  • If the dog is left with anyone and the maid isn’t there to control him, he’ll bite.
  • The dad can’t be left with any of the daughters when the mom isn’t there.
  • Likewise, the mom can’t be trusted alone with either of the sons when the dad isn’t there.

Remember! only an adult can operate the boat, AND the boat can’t drive itself.

How can you solve it ? 🀣
