Young Parents (Singapore) - - C NTENTS -

How should I han­dle a kid who keeps ask­ing "why"? The "why" ques­tion is a pow­er­ful learn­ing tool for the child-and, yes, it is end­less, and at times, frus­tat­ing to the adult. But when we see it through the eyes of a child, it is a win­dow into his com­pe­tence and ca­pa­bil­ity to be a crit­i­cal and cre­ative thinker and prob­lem solver.

Ask­ing "why" con­tin­u­osly en­ables him to make more and more con­nec­tions and deepen his un­der­stand­ing - and yours, as well. It re­ally does make you think as you seek to find the an­swers along­side him! Learn­ing is a jour­ney and it is more ex­cit­ing when you have some­one to share it with. Through ask­ing "why", Ju­nior is shar­ing his jour­ney with you. En­joy! Leanne Su­narya, Eton house
