Toddlers have an insatiable curiosity. They’re constantly climbing up, poking around, and getting into things as they explore the world around them. Their daily experience is one of continual discoveries, making life an adventure.

Once you get acclimatized to circumstances, it’s natural to want to leave things as they are, even when those circumstances aren't serving your best interests.
