Oh, of course! My whole job is concerned with mental child development and helping to improve that, so I could go on for hours and hours telling you stories of children learning and growing in the weeks and months I've been with them lol. That's why I even said they usually cool their jets as they near their teenage years and become more aware of how systems work and that simply manding for something usually doesn't cut it anymore.
On the same token, I could also go on and on about how stubborn children can be when it comes down to it. They will give you every reason in the book for why it's a great idea to give them fruit snacks and candy bahahaha
