Your child looks in the cabinets and drawers and asks a lot of questions, and no sooner have you answered one question then they ask another… You may be annoyed and ask them to be quiet sometimes, but try to take a closer look at the matter. Your child does this because they want to know and because they’re curious. So help them feed that curiosity rather than talking them out of it.
Answer Their Questions
To deal with your child’s curiosity the right way, answer all their questions, even those you consider trivial and unimportant. Explain, for example, why a “brush” is called a brush.
Don’t take your answer beyond the limits of their question. Let them have space to think and feel excited to learn more. Be patient.
Share Life with Them
To do that, set aside some time to spend with them. For example, go through a photo family album with them. They’ll ask questions and discover the existence of the past, in which people and their clothes looked different. They’ll start to understand change.
Play with them and focus on games that increase the capabilities of their senses to discover. Have them close their eyes for example and try to recognize objects by touch or smell…
Your child is affected by you, so be curious in your turn. Show them that curiosity. If you notice an insect in your home, for example, express your surprise as though you were discovering it for the first time.
Leave confined spaces in your home that your child can reach without being exposed to harm. Opening the cupboard or lower drawers will make them feel the joy of discovery and will boost their curiosity. You might put some objects in the drawer, for example, so that they can try and examine and discover their components and forms.
An Important Tip
It’s wrong to imitate your child’s pronunciation of words. It’s necessary for them to learn to pronounce them correctly. You should use words that are new to them, too; that way, they’ll ask you about their meaning, which will nourish their curiosity.
