Innocence lost - Part 1

At approximately the age of four children lose their innocence and become capable of deceit. The exact time of “crossing over” can be tested in a simple experiment that heralds the child’s ability to see the world through someone else’s eyes. When this ability develops a child is able to switch his perspective to that of another person, and they begin to think what other people think, and care what other people feel.

This milestone in childhood development is also considered to be the stage where children begin to reason logically and start to communicate intelligently about the world according to their own experience in an effort to gain a better understanding of their own perception.
