A child's penetration is keener, and a child's judgement is fairer, than most parents imagine. It is true that a child's knowledge is limited, and that therefore he can be easily turned aside from inquiry into a realm of facts with which he is quite unacquainted.

Perceptual development is necessary for the developing child to be able to socialise, develop a sense of self-awareness, and hand-eye co-ordination.

Perception is extremely important for the developing child, as this is how the individual makes sense of the world. First one experiences a sensation, such as touch, smell, taste, sound or sight, then there is an interpretation, followed by perception, resulting in a response.

 Let's love our children in ways that they can understand....
