Why is it so hard to let children struggle with things?

Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are , died this year.  There is a good article about him at:

The reason I posted this is because he is considered one of the world’s best.  His portrayal of young children went against everything society said they should be. I love this line from the article: He was a man of many enthusiasms — for music, art, literature, argument and the essential rightness of children’s perceptions of the world around them.”
Can we be inspired by him to also be an enthusiast of the “essential rightness of children’s perceptions of the world around them”? Do we know what the children’s perceptions of the world are?
