Q: Following three convincing grounds indicate the reason why parents are almost necessary for their children. Does this sound natural?
A: I don't understand what you mean by "grounds". Maybe instead use "There are three main pieces of evidence that indicates..." in place of "Following three convincing grounds indicate..."

Also, personally I would change "...indicate the reason why parents are almost necessary for their children..." to "...indicates that parents are necessary for children..." This is a bit easier and shows you are confident in this conclusion.

It would be even better to add why the parents are necessary for example "...necessary for a child's mental development".

Sorry if some of this is hard to understand.
