Thinking rationally

Children are refreshingly direct in their thoughts and actions. In contrast, adult behaviour can appear extremely irrational. For example, the person who praises you for drawing a picture on a blank sheet of paper will, for no reason immediately obvious to the average toddler, punish you severely for drawing a similar picture on a blank wall.

By the time the child is walking and talking, it knows that everything it does has a certain risk factor attached to it. When attempting something new, it runs a 50/50 chance of either being praised or getting into trouble.
