childish or childlike

A few days late and a post short, but not short of something thoughtful from a tribe leader:

There’s a huge difference between being childlike and being childish.  When we embrace joy and look at the world with fresh eyes, we’re being childlike.  When we demand instant gratification and a guarantee that everything will be ok, we’re only being childish.”
