A recent discussion in another thread speculated the communicative ability of children and spirit. 

The discussion centered around opinions that children are more in tune with Spirit and lose this gift as they get older.


Science may offer a glimpse into the question of children & spirit:



Alison Gopnik, PhD. is a Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley and Director of the Gopnik Cognitive Development Lab.  She is recognized internationally as a leader in the study of children’s learning.
 
While Dr.Gopnik does not believe in the eternal soul,  her 20 year study into the uncharted areas of the brains of infants and children has led her to the conclusion that what some would call the spirit is closest to us when we are children.
