Mingming is in the first grade this year. His father is on business trips all the year round, and his mother takes good care of Mingming. He does not let Mingming do anything at home.

Abstract thinking uses abstract concepts and judgments as the basic elements of thinking to reveal the essential characteristics and regularity of things.
