Younger Kids May Make Better Decisions Than Older Ones

A new study has found that, in a way, the older you get the worse your decision-making becomes.

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada, found that younger children seem to make slightly better decisions than older children.

The older children get, the more they tend to ignore some of the information available to them when making judgments. While this is more efficient, it can also lead to mistakes, the researchers said.
