However, children are sophisticated thinkers and more capable of abstract thought. In some ways, kids make better philosophers than adults because they question things grown-ups take for granted and are open to new ideas.
The late philosopher Gareth Matthews was one of the first people to notice this. Unlike Piaget, who supposed that children can't yet use logic, Matthews found that kids can reason in subtle ways from the ages of 3 to 7.
Kids are constantly puzzled by the world. They always want to know how or why. Kids are also not concerned if they'll make mistakes or seem silly as they try and figure things out.
Developmental psychologists are catching on to kids’ capabilities. Children aren't just "primitive grownups gradually attaining perfection and complexity." Their minds are complex and powerful. If we can sustain kids’ curiosity, they might become more discerning adults.
For adults to become better thinkers, they only have to talk to children and take them seriously.
Children's well-placed why's can push you past your ability to explain everyday things and help you question truths you hold dear. They can even help you see the world in a new way.
Deep thinker. Like talking about the world, religion and politics.
Developmental psychologists are catching on that children from age 3 - 7 are often more capable of complex thought than previously thought. Adults can tap into that by actively talking and listening to them.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
