Toddlers smarter than monkeys
I had to laugh at the study. Any parent could tell you that a toddler can watch a person complete a task, like opening a cookie container, and copy the actions. OK, we probably aren’t so good at telling you how a monkey would respond, but we know how smart toddlers are.
What they didn’t reveal in the study is the likelihood that the toddler will do said task when you’re not watching, at the most inopportune time, or perform a task you really didn’t want them to copy. Like flipping someone the bird.
