Which learned people? Learn from those who are not responsible for themselves? Try being around an excited child for extended periods of time. Try being around an adult who displays child-like excitement on meeting every new person and every new thing. Take an RV trip with such a person where the person is in your face 24x7 with the brief respite of sleep. Taking a risk is when you have to bear the consequences if the venture goes wrong. Children are mostly not accountable for any risks, their parents are. Children take adequate precaution too when risking what is precious to them. If they have a new toy they will be careful whom they share it with. For example. If they have a collection, they will swap with others only after estimating the value of what they are getting and researching it online. Ever saw a child who asks the most embarrassing question or makes the most untactful remark? Should an adult do that? Exploring new things, visiting new places are things children do when parents spend the time and money. Parents also would be as curious as children if they did not have the responsibility of the very children. I found a great deal to visit a country DH and I always wanted to visit, explore and hike a 6 day trail. Turned out it clashed with one kid's online course's final exam that has to be taken online in a 24 hour window. With no guarantee of internet access, I put my curiosity on hold for a few more years. DH and I will be that much older and probably not able to hike 6 days at a stretch carrying our stuff with us. Would we like to see adults routinely and freely, sincerely protest doing what they are required to do? Should adults speak their mind and express their words without calculating how the other person is going to react? Can an adult get away with "no intention to hurt but expression is only to love, learn and etc.?" Children do not have the responsibility that adults carry. All the child has to do is do reasonably well in school, make new friends, try new experiences, and come back dead tired and fall asleep. Parent has to go about his regular job while also taking care of settling into the new place. Comparing a child's lack of resistance to change to that of an adult is silly. The buck stops with the parent. That is big. If the adult is not responsible for his or her family's well-being, he or she will also be as carefree as the child and welcoming of change. Maybe children adapt so easily as they have little choice and little responsibility. What is so bad about multitasking as a skill? Let's try to live a few hours without multitasking and behold the mayhem that ensues. Multi-tasking needs to be employed with moderation, not totally eschewed like an infant focusing on his toy. If I did not have to make a living, do household chores, manage my investments, exercise, chauffeur kid around, meditate, socialize etc. I would also be in a permanent vacation mode sporting the beatific smile of an air-hostess at the start of a long-haul flight. You gotta be kidding, no pun intended. Children can lie with a straight face and looking you straight in the eye. We have threads here that are testimony. They can plan their lie so well that is turns mom and dad into detectives who put Mr. Poirot to temporary shame. Children are nice to have. They bring fulfillment and a sense of completeness to life. Life wouldn't be the same without them. But let's not over-glorify them. They need close to twenty years of care and bringing up. They tax the soul. Let's follow Kahlil Gibran's and similar wise people's wisdom as much as we can, bring up the little ones, turn them into responsible adults who contribute to society, and consider our jobs done. No need to emulate the little ones in our adult lives. Far from bhagwan ka roop they can more often be the devil incarnate.
