> OK, I'll ignore, but let me just say that 8 is the age of accountability. A child at the age of 8 is capable of knowing.


Please expand what is different from age 7 as you see it. Since every word of the phrase, "A child at the age of 8 is capable of knowing", according to Piaget and others, would remain abstract for 99% of all 8 year olds. I don't see the change you allude to, (but that's just me).

I see 7 and 8 year olds knowing only an abstraction of the conscepts we pass onto them measured as feelings in their gut. I'm curious what you have read or know from experience. I am aware of their ability from age 7 to perform simple if-then reasoning.

If-and-if-then makes no sense to them. Artificial intelligence can be the results from nearly infinite numbers of if-and-if-and-if clauses strung together, yet the computer never really "knows". Help me with this, pleas?

What do 8 year olds say is different about their experience now from what they did as 7 year olds? I was never the mother, always the father, so I trust your perspective as a mom.
