Are children or adults more or less sensitive?

Emotionally, sensitively, scientifically and psychologically asked profoundly as we can, because of ageless judgements of how we feel and are - as we age, or at any age - being less or more sensitive in time.

tynamite's avatar In terms of hurting someone's feelings, adults are just as sensitive to criticism and being marginalised, as children are. They both don't tolerate such things, except that one is expected to behave more mature in times of conflict.

However, if a child isn't given regard and praise by their parents or their peers by a certain age (forgot), then bad stuff happens and they start to be insecurely attached (counselling term - need to lookup what it means), and they end up being ____ (forgot - need to ask), as they have missed a part of their Key Stages (Carl Rogers). This could cause them to gain particular personality disorders.

Being given praise, regard, and acceptance as a child, is crucially important for their child development.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
