Childish - explained from a yoga point of view

Childish is okay, childish is not good. Anyone who behaves childishly is silly, foolish, immature. You can say that when someone desperately wants something and insists on wanting it, that is childish. Or if someone sulks just because their wishes are not being granted, then that is childish.

So childish is silly, naive, puerile, and undeveloped. Childish refers to the not so positive aspects of being a child.

Child naturally also has positive aspects, such as curiosity, spontaneity, warmth and quick forgetting of what has been. Thus, behavior by adults that is immature is childish. In parallel to German there is "child like" and "childish" in English.
