Fun Facts

small children (up to the age of 4) do not understand that other people think differently then they do. they are entirely void of empathy.
only their own thoughts are what they view as reality. how others experience events never comes into play for them.
that is why they cry when you deny them what they want.
it fucks their brains up. they do not understand that you are not on the same page as them.
K: "like, we are clear that I am suppose to have this candy right now!"
P: "you do not get to have this candy!"
K: "wtf?!?!"

always fun to watch people tell parent that they should teach a sub 4yo child some manners when they see a kid cry for that reason. its not possible even if they tried.
