I will always remember the constant barrage of questions from my children when they were toddlers. “Why do cars have wheels? Why do we have to wear nice clothes to church? Why does the moon change shapes? Why, why, why!
As overwhelming as all of the questioning can be, it’s important to know that your child has a good reason for asking questions. He is naturally curious and he wants to learn as much as he can about the world around him. Research reveals that young children are naturally driven to learn. One way that they can learn is through asking questions.
If your child asks you a question and you don’t know the answer, take him to the library and check out a book on the subject! Discover the answers to difficult questions by conducting a little research together. Your child will enjoy the experience and will learn all about the library and the world of books.
So encourage curiosity and teach your child to be a life-long learner! You are laying a solid foundation for your child’s bright future.
