    Is this right?
    I agree with you on the first two. Pouting is really a facial expression like this: http://tinyurl.com/2k3tt7

    It often precedes either crying or anger.

    I think even big guys do that... How about big guys throwing a tantrum or pouting or sulking?

    Tell them it's time they grew up and stopped behaving like a two-year old.

    Then I say, she acts childish at times.

    I'm told being childish is different from being childlike? Is it right?

    Re: kids

    childish = Marked by or indicating a lack of maturity; puerile

    childlike = Like or befitting a child, as in innocence, trustfulness, or candor.
