Small children As the child’s speech increases, the child’s curiosity grows. No wonder, at the age of my child who has been three years, there are just questions that he catapulted.
Like some time ago, he suddenly asked why there could be rain, is it because of clouds that are crying. Sometimes confused also want to answer it, because worry our explanation make children do not understand. Mother have a similar experience?
According to a study in England, because of his curiosity, children can ask 73 surprising questions every day you know, mom.
Researchers find common questions that children often ask who, why, when, where, and much more. Well, it turns out that of the many parents, only half of who tried to find out the answer.
Children generally start curious and want to know more at the age of four, regardless of gender. Well, bombardment of these questions can certainly make Mother and Dad overwhelmed. If on average, four out of 10 people feel discouraged after being attacked by questions.
According to the Independent website, most parents switch to Google to get the answer or answer it on the spot.
Naturally also yes if children can memborbardir with dozens of questions, because they began to ask since waking up until going to bed at night. Yeah, my son is also nih, Bun. Early in the morning when waking up already started the day with the question, “The school went in or off?” and “What day is it?”.
Then at bedtime, when I read the story for him, he will ask many questions about the characters in his story. For example if the character is a dinosaur, my son will ask what dinosaur food, then where dinosaur his home, where his mother worked, and so on.
From a survey conducted in Britain on 1,500 dads and mothers surveyed, a third said that answering children’s questions is often very slow. However, four out of 10 people claim to be proud of their child’s interest in the surrounding environment.
Still from the survey, children who live in the capital more often want him. In London alone, average children ask 93 questions each day. So nearly four questions every hour since the child wakes up.
What exactly keeps the child asking questions? According to child psychologist Dr. Sam Wass, in addition to curious, feel strange with the environment also be the cause of the emergence of questions non-stop.
Half of the parents see children getting more questions when they hear adult conversations. Besides Bun, about 46 percent connect it with other children, as well as their wild imagination.
To help parents answer some of the more challenging children’s questions, Tots Town at Argos in collaboration with Dr. Sam Wass created a series of videos covering various topics. They also develop games that foster child development.
“As children grow up, it’s natural to be curious about the world around them, and as parents, it’s easy to forget that most of our children’s knowledge comes from what we tell them,” Wass said.
According to Wass using educational and visual aids, such as toys, can help overcome difficulties in answering child questions. “Expressing complex thoughts and ideas through familiar items can often help to understand children’s thinking,” Wass continued.
Chad Valley Tots Town has launched three videos, each using a role play to explain the most challenging parent questions. Well, here are some questions that children often feel difficult for parents:
1. Why do people die?
2. How was I born?
3. What is God?
4. What does ‘we can not’ mean?
5. Why should I go to school?
6. If the mother dies, what am I doing?
7. Why is the sky blue?
According to Dr. Meta Hanindita, SpA, , at one time it is natural for a child to ask a lot because of great curiosity, Bun. “A lot of talent can be seen since childhood, actually not ‘talent’ yes that, but usually it is.This does not have any research,” said Dr. Meta.
Speech therapist at Harapan Kita Hospital, Rita Rahmawati, Amd. TW, SPd, says children talk a lot at a certain age because of their cognitive abilities growing rapidly. Many new vocabularies are absorbed and used by children.
“Much speech does not mean talent but it is the ability to have many vocabularies that usually go hand in hand with high levels of intelligence or high cognitive abilities,” Rita said.
To respond, Bun, parents should facilitate with things that are positive and able to address the conversation of children in accordance with the ability to speak.
