25 Things That Might Surprise You About Kids

Kids are crazy. Seriously, who would want them? Well lots of people thankfully. Otherwise we wouldn’t be here! While we all know how crazy kids can be, they are also a source of crazy creativity and energy. Did you know that your toddler is a genius? He or she is capable of learning a potentially limitless number of languages fluently within several years. This ability will quickly fade but a child’s ability to rapidly pick up languages simultaneously without confusing them has been a great source of study for linguists and scientists in recent years. Also, did you know that your children can hear more sounds than you do? If you listen to a foreign language you might run across words and sounds that seem exactly the same to your ears. Kids, however, can distinguish them perfectly. This is all to say, kids are amazing. The way their brain works is very different from adults and that is why there is so much potential for conflict between kids and their parents. With a little understanding, however, you’ll be much better equipped to deal with those little rascals! So, whether you plan on having them or not, these are 25 things that might surprise you about kids!
