Children from other cultuires
I recently read a story about a little girl who disappeared in China. The story was sad because the family missed their daughter, but at the same time it was intriguing. This little girl was about three years old, and her job was to walk to the market every day to buy something for the family. She walked and shopped BY HERSELF! Here in the States, some three-year-olds are still in diapers and drinking out of sippy cups, and moms never let them out of sight! Why do you think other children are so much more mature? Is it the culture? Upbringing? Expectation? A natural diet?
