Small Adults: Children Know Things That Adults Ignore

· March 3, 2017

They are only children, but they grow and mature faster than expected. Although their bodies may be small and still developing, within them reside small adults who know much more than we think they do. Children suffer and live the same experiences as adults do. They have been pushed to acquire responsibilities that, at their age, still shouldn’t belong to them.

Many parents turn a blind eye towards the problems their children may face. Or, in other words, to the problems that they have and which affect these youngsters. Their frustrations, misfortunes, difficulties, all of this is projected towards their children. Because, according to the adults, children won’t notice anything.

“It’s easier to raise strong children than to repair broken adults.”
