You are 5 years old! You have frontal lobes for a reason!
Once upon a time, Sally and Suzie were two childhood friends. Not only did their homes imitate each other, but so did their maturation processes. Experiences could not affect how similar their changes in behavior were.
¨I remember everything!¨
No Sally, there´s a thing called infantile Amnesia...
Neural networks enable sally to walk, talk, and remember. When Sally is feeling down, she just has to think about her powerful brain.
One day Sally and Suzie were bored. Sally wanted to trudge into an scary shed, so Suzie had to remind her to think rationally. Between the ages of 3-6 years old, the frontal lobes are the most rapid growth area and enable rational planning.
Suzie knows Sally is making this up. Both girls, like all people, have the inability to recall memories before the age of three years old because of infantile amnesia.
Suzie, remember the times when were maturing together? We were two years old, and we went into the hot tub together?
During the pruning process, unused links are shut down and others are strengthened. Suzie has her purple pruning process package with all the unused links all packed up and ready to go out the door...
