Children, by nature, are quick to pick up on things. Some things are good and we are thankful they are taking note and asking questions, while others are not so good and we bemoan the fact they are so attune to such things that we'd prefer go unnoticed in their sponge like minds.
For the believer in Christ, the follower of the Way, the being sanctified child in the Spirit, we should celebrate the fact that children want to learn.
