Too many people today seem to have trouble dividing ideas and distinguishing things into categories.  A solid background in logic helps us to do this.  Logic has several mundane, practical applications such as helping people make lists, categories things and ideas, and organize their stuff and their plans.
Children learn logic primarily through games, such as sorting games and matching games.  There they learn how to create categories and systematically solve problems.  If a childhood is lacking in these games, the adult child will be lacking in logic skills.  We are by nature rational creatures, but neither our ideas nor our modes of thinking are wholly innate.  They must be learned.
