The marshmallow test

This video really made me smile after a tiring day. The kids are sooo-oo cute! This famous test on children is mainly on delayed gratification. Most of the kids that were able to stop themselves from eating the marshmallow while left alone in that room for an hour were found out to have good control of themselves and did not have trouble on delayed gratification as adults.

One funny comment on this youtube video was, “I think the kids won’t have as much struggle if they were left with a carrot.” So funny, and true! I could not agree more.

I wonder how my kids would fare this test? 😉
