Differences in how children and adults acquire beliefs

Children generally have no solid beliefs. They rely solely on personal experiences and interactions during childhood to serve as a basis for forming any beliefs. Everything must be confirmed personally. Adults are opposite. We jump into a system of beliefs we use a basis for how we should experience. Then we press all experiences and their interpretations into the narrow tunnel of these limited beliefs in order to confirm them. So we believe in order to experience, while children experience in order to believe. The greater of the two is evident in who exhibits a greater carefree happiness.
