On the advice of Todd Zywiecki I purchased Harold Berman's legendary book Law and Revolution. I learned today that Berman was famous for articulating our innate (i.e. our children) grasp of natural law:

A child says, ‘It’s my toy.’ That’s property law,” he said. “A child says, ‘You promised me.’ That’s contract law. A child says, ‘He hit me first.’ That’s criminal law. A child says, ‘Daddy said I could.’ That’s constitutional law.”
