"The little child must have developed certain qualities before he is able to obey.  He cannot, all of a sudden, act in conformity with another person's will, nor can he grasp, from one day to the next, the reason for doing what we require of him."

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind 

The young child is obedient to his/her own inner drive, which is constantly pushing in the direction of important self-construction without regard to the development of those around.  These behaviors are healthy and appropriate - but often frustrating for the adult.
