Dose of Adorable: Toddler conducts choir

Ever been told to mind your manners or your words when young children are present? It's not that the children will necessarily be offended, of course, but because they're likely to model and repeat that behavior.

The reverse is naturally also true; when we model positive behaviors, children imitate that as well.

The Current's host and producer Jade shared this recent video out of Kyrgyzstan that was posted by our friends at the CBC, in which a toddler appears to conduct her father's choir by imitating the choir director.

Jean Piaget may have likely regarded this as typical behavior — but for most of us, it's just plain adorable.

This child will be another Mozart.
