After watching the video in lecture a couple weeks ago about whether or not children realize if an object is still there when it is covered up or if they think that it actually disappears when it is covered up. During spring break I saw a real life example of this. I was sitting by the pool and there was a baby with her dad in the pool. The baby was probably around one year old. The baby was floating in an inter tube and her father was holding on to the tube. The father would go under the water and the baby would just look around for him wondering where he went. Then a couple seconds later he would pop up out of the water and she would just smile and laugh and then he would repeat this and every time she would laugh and smile. But I wonder if she really thought he disappeared or knew that he went under the water.
Did He Really Disappear?
