3–5 YEARS CONSTANTLY ASKING QUESTIONS

Decoded message:

I understand more and more. I have a lot of questions
and I need someone to help me find the answers.

Suggested actions:

Adapting your actions to be more receptive

Be available and willing to answer a multitude of questions.
Your child is discovering the world and learning constantly.
If you don’t know the answer immediately, tell him that you will do a bit of research and get back to him a little later.
Don’t forget to follow through!

Staying close

Be patient with your child when he asks millions of questions!
Each question is important to him, so try to show interest in every one.
Show your child that his questions are interesting and that you like talking with him.
Remind him that he is important and that his questions matter.
Help him find answers to questions himself whenever possible, and tell him that you are proud of him when he succeeds.

Promoting play

Give your child attention and answer his questions as he asks.
Remember that your child learns through your replies.
Talk with him and try to feed his interest in the subject.
You may also ask him: “What do you think of this?” returning the question to him.
You may be surprised by his answers! Be positive when your answer his questions.
Encourage him to develop his curiosity through reading, nature walks, visits to the museum, seeing children’s plays or watching special children’s shows with him.
All of these activities foster his love of learning.
