Mensagem:  I think two out of the three work okay. See the comments and examples. Eu quero dizer que "é normal crianças se perderem na praia". Devo falar: It´s normal / common / usual children get lost on the beach. It´s usual/common for children to get lost? It's common for children to get lost at the beach. It's mot normal for children to get lost at the beach but it happens when their parents don't watch them closely. (não é uma coisa comum) It's usual for children to get lost on the beach and if there are lots of people there you might feel better putting an identification bracelet on your child. Mão gosto da palavra normal neste sentido porque não é normal perder uma criança na praia. Acontece sim, common and usual yes, but not normal except in the lands where all of the children are bad and their parents tell them to go play on the other side of the street (this is a euphemysm for "go get run over by a passing car and relieve me of my misery").
