    Both sentences are far too wordy. – Global Charm Jan 2 '18 at 21:42

    'Relentlessly' is wrong here. It should be 'diligently' or 'vigilantly'.'Susceptible to creating' is wrong, also; it is a non-sequitur. – Nigel J Jan 2 '18 at 22:06

Both examples seem to overuse 'more', particularly given that they're opening sentences where no precedent has been set for susceptibility to- or a quantity of problems. In addition 'Relentlessly' seems to carry some subjective weight.

Perhaps 'thoroughly' would be a suitable alternative for 'relentlessly' and would carry fewer negative connotations?

I'd suggest 'Children are susceptible to create problems and endangering themselves and so should be thoroughly supervised by parents'.
