In the beginning of the video Alison Gopnik states beginning at 19 seconds into the Ted Talk Video that over twenty years ago psychologist thought that a baby’s “mind was irrational, illogical, egocentric, that he couldn’t take the perspective of another person or understand cause and effect.” Thinking about just the start of her speech I immediately think back to all my days as a child care worker wondering how different it would be if I had been born some thirty years ago what would my mind think of children and would it be different because of the time that I had been set in.
We are talking about baby brain growth this week – This statement above really has changed.
What can you add to the board that shows how we think differently about maturation of children now compared to even 20 years ago??
