Study shows babies try to help

Psychology researcher Felix Warneken conducted a study that shows toddlers would help him with tasks such as retrieving dropped clothespins or helping re-stack books. Warneken observed that such altruistic behaviors are specific to humans, and can be present even before the group of 18 month old toddlers.

However, Felix Warneken did notice that such altrustic behaviors usually linger well into adulthood, but then suddenly stop as soon as those babies get elected into office.
