It is very childish. He's like a child. How often have we heard this said to an adult over another adult? Sure many. This association of immaturity or madness with children is well established in the mental frameworks of the immense majority of the adult population of our country and beyond.

But, if we stop to thiink, boys and girls actually have a huge learning ability, greater than many adults. They have the same capacity for reasoning as adults, but with fewer mental barriers and fewer artificial moral limitations than adults ...

But on the other hand, how many times have we also heard that "out of the mouths of children comes the truth"? And how many times have we not said that an impartial view is an issue seen from "a child's look"? Precisely, reasoning, stripped of prejudices, simple and with a great logic of a child, puts us back at the key point of an issue that we thought we had perfectly named.

The paradigm is breaking. The paradigm that says that it is the children who learn and the adults who teach. It has been increasingly demonstrated that children are perfectly capable of approaching and solving problems, providing different visions to a challenge or more easily breaking the molds in which adults are installed and which prevent us from moving forward ...

If this is so, why not give children tools for steel easier this exchange with adults? Why not create spaces for children to participate more actively in society? Why not encourage today's children to be better adults tomorrow?
