As children we play in order to have fun. We do not play in order to exploit the other person.
When, how and why does the process change?
How to determine the following?
How, when and why do we stop playing for the sake of playing and having fun and try to create an advantageous position or compromise the other player’s sensation of fun.
More importantly, how and why are parents allowing it to occur?
When, how and why does it become ok for a child to improve its own position in order to experience more fun than the other child.
Does the child invent the concept of ‘advantage’ or is it suggested by the environment or by the parent?
The origins of the process?
Must a child begin to reduce the amount of empathy it experiences and that is contained within it as soon as it begins to identify itself and separate itself from the environment or does it occur later on?
