Children are wiser than we give them credit for.

On this week's episode of Radiolab, they played a clip of an experimenter asking children about ethical questions.  He asked "If there wasn't a rule not to hit someone, would it be OK then?"  Even little children (I think 4 years old) knew it wasn't. 

It made me think of those stupid AT&T commercials like this one.  Knowing how wise children really are makes it even worse to trivialize it when selling mobile phone service.
