An excuse for messy rooms??

Parents, there may be a scientific reason why your kids just don’t see the mess in their bedrooms.  New research suggests that children actually see differently than adults.  Kids under the age of 12 process sensory information differently in order to understand the world around them.  Adults have the ability to blend binocular visual clues and sounds.  Combining that sensory information to give one clear picture.  Children’s brain cells are still developing so not only do they separate the different senses, like vision and sound, their brains divide the input.  For instance, they see with each eye independently and hear separately.  That’s four separate inputs.
