Indeed. What's weird about this thread is that this psychological aspects of the nature of brain development is really not up for dispute at all. It's not like this is some paradigmatic squabble where all opinions are equal -- kids brains are simply underdeveloped in this area, and that is hard fact. Every scientist involved in this area will tell you this.
