I had thoughts about what would happen if magic came back in the world and the first people to discover that fact were two-year-olds. Everyone else has some idea of how the world is supposed to work. People that now believe in magick, God, or spirits would have them behave pretty much as they expected them to, as they'd expect no more, ask no more than they do now, and still attribute the results to their entities' likes or dislikes. Two-year-olds, however, try everything and anything and see what the boundaries and realities are themselves. Five-year-olds, already have a sense of what's right and wrong, what's true and false, and what will work and what won't and are accordingly scornful. Two-year-olds don't. They also don't listen when someone else tells them what they can or can't do, they try it anyway...
