Precociousness Tropes

The general consensus of children is that they be kids. However, on more than a few occasions they exhibit intellect out of the norm, intentionally or not. This very index lists tropes that subvert the idea that all children are naive and innocent, rather being intelligent and mature before their time and knowing more than adults let on, for better or worse.

Contrast Immaturity Tropes, which is the opposite thing. Someone who is Really 700 Years Old may appear this way but doesn't technically count.
