The death of the bunny is as bad as the death of grandma.
Certain hypocrisies that adults exhibit. The times when an adult might be unfair, or say one thing and do another. I think that children can be much more practical and see things as silly or unnecessary when adults have lost sight of that. Like when we wait in lines for long periods. Kids tend to see how strangely complicated the world is and to wonder why, when we as adults have gotten so brainwashed that we are often beyond questioning the norms.
Kids often have the ability to see beauty in things. To appreciate the miracles in nature or to enjoy little details. Even to feel and to savor certain sensations that we seem to lose touch with. Children know about gratitude...when being held by a parent and enjoying a bottle is all that there is in the world. And children are often in the NOW.
what doesn't look good, doesn't taste good.
That the dark hallway really is scary
That it is better to hide than fight someone larger than you
All the things I can think of... it's not that we don't see them, it's just that we are unaffected, which is really quite sad.
