Children are often the most creative thinkers because they haven't yet been beaten down by years in the workforce. Everything is still brand new to them, and the ways of the world feel more malleable for a child scheming to get what they want.
It can be truly fascinating to watch children synthesize all the new information they're presented with, particularly when they make quick connections and ask smart and curious questions.
