Cognition & Speech

Just because someone doesn’t speak up doesn’t mean they don’t understand.

Not everything is to be replied to,the alternative is to think over it.

I have seen elders pushing children to be more outspoken.But why nobody encourages children to think more? They can’t speak unless they think,can they? For productive speech,productive thinking is necessary.

Motivation

As we become an adult,logic becomes a norm and creativity something unique.As a child it is the other way round.To us some of their endeavour may seem fruitless,but what they do all the time is completely new to them,and that’s important.They don’t hesitate to try because they don’t understand the cost that risk bears.Who do you think is more vulnerable? Us or a baby? Of course,the latter.Our mental faculty helps us to assess and averse the risk but not take it head on because we are afraid of the consequences.We have more tools that a kid does to get ourselves back on the track,yet they are the ones taking more risks than us.We understand our risks and have a greater ability to deal with them yet we take a step back.It doesn’t seem that we just evolve from childhood to late adulthood but more like evolve-devolve,for both good and bad.
