"Children have a world of seeing perceiving, feeling, thinkingand interpreting that is unique to each individual child and is separate from ours as adults. Remembering that they have a different position in life - literally - and from this piosition see the same things we do but from a much more simplistic and logical-to-them-but-perhaps-not-to-us angle, will help us to extend our thinking beyond how we would react, perceive, think and feel in various situations."
