You never know when a mini-you will spit a bite-sized lesson on life instead of drool or something even nastier. Chances are, it'll catch you completely off guard, too. For example, while driving them to the daycare to or making pancakes for breakfast. Luckily for us, parents whose kids are sharing their insights are tweeting these statements, so everyone can get to know the real scope of their innocent wisdom. It's not the first time when their philosophical gems get viral. Earlier, Bored Panda has shown how cheeky 6-year-olds can be, lecturing their parents on every possible situation. This time, however, we've decided to focus on someone more mature -- 7-year-olds. Below you'll find a list that captures the smart world of a 7-year-old mind. Apparently, one year age difference might bring sassiness to a whole new level.

7-year-olds are naturally curious. Imagine the world through their eyes—it’s all one huge sandbox where everything needs to go through trial and error until it makes sense. Touch a hot stove—ouch, lick a freezing pole and you’ll never do that again. Unsurprisingly, children development experts believe that kids’ thirst for the world is virtually unstoppable. Amy Morin, a psychotherapist and lecturer at Northeastern University in Boston, calls 7-year-olds “explorers, scientists, and analysts” who “often ask questions about everything from why the sky is blue to where babies come from.” Next time your kid drops a time ticking wisdom bomb, you had better have a good back-up plan ready.

Imagine this simple fact—7-year-olds' vocabulary and reading skills are, so to speak, on fire. Kids of this age learn thousands of sight words, giving them solid conversational ammunition. Even when their first coherent expressions might mean the world to them but not that much to us, we have to celebrate their endless creativity. When you really think about these philosophical gems, you might start wondering—who said that older means smarter?

When my youngest was 4-5, I woke her up one morning and she said,” I was just talking to Jesus. He was in my window.” M’kay... we weren’t a religious household, but certainly focused on morals, kindness, manners. “He has a cute butt!” I think she was ginning for a reaction. I didn’t give her one. It was funny, though.

Swearing is good for your mental health. So the beeping is a conspiracy!

There is always an innocent explanation when they are 7.

I dunno. There are stories of zoo animals tending to children who fall into the exhibit. I think befriending it probably has as much chance of success as a 7yo attempting to fight the 400lb grizzly.

Damn, why didn’t I think of that? Although I don’t think that would have gone down too well since my hubby and I don’t wear pyjamas lol.
