A big :) yes to research on socialization and expectations in developmental psychology.

IMHO best not to pander to the delusion that things have acceptable explainations - lest we take the small jars of mint jelly from the flock or come to udderstand what 'you are what you eat' means.

There is no science behind magic and kids - just oddly motivated adults. ;)
