{October 1, 2010}   HOW TO HANDLE A KID WHO QUESTIONS TOO MUCH?

Kids who questions

Kids who questions

We all have met that kids who questions too much about anything and everything. Whether it is your  kid, a neice or nephew or someone you babysit, it can be quite tiresome and impossible to answer all the questions put forth by them. Kids are very observant and curious about life. There are some people who question incessantly just to annoy others, but kids are innocent. They really want to know the answers to the questions they ask. Their view of life, and understanding about the things around them generally depends on the answers they get. Keeping this in mind, we should be very careful and patient about answering kids’ questions instead of dismissing them as trivial and bothersome.
However, like I said earlier, it is not possible to answer all their questions all the time, but kids are quite sensitive and if you keep on rebutting them , they might become withdrawn and shy. Whenever you can, answer their questions patiently and honestly. Do not feed them with lies about things you don’t know. Just tell them that you don’t. Kids will believe you. When you can’t keep up with the questions , ask them to note down their questions in a book. This will help them in the future at school too. Answer them later or encourage the kids themselves to go to a library and read about what they want to know.

Sometimes the questions of kids  are open ended and don’t have a right or wrong answer but still they make you think. You can even be quite baffled by the questions kids ask about various scientific things or they may question you about things that you haven’t ever thought about. Here are some questions that kids tend to ask and the kinds of explanation you can give them.

Q: Do animals help each other?
A: Many animals species have developed relationships with each other that benefit both species. Birds and mammal species love to eat the tasty fruits provided by trees. Even fish living in the Amazon River rely on fruits dropped from forest trees. In turn, the fruit trees depend upon these animals to eat their fruit, which helps them to spread their seeds to far-off parts of the forest.

Q: Why are eggs egg shaped?
A: This can be quite puzzlinmg, but scientists have one very sensible theory.The ovoid shape gives an egg its incredible strength! Many scientists also believe that the egg is shaped the way it is because this enables it to roll in a circular path along its most pointed end (which really comes in handy for birds laying eggs in high places; there’s far less danger of the egg rolling out of its nest)

Q: Why doesn’t chewing gum stick to my teeth?
A: Your teeth are wet and slick. Then you get the gum all wet and slipperly with saliva. In this state, the two don’t stick to each other because there is too much water between them. If you let gum dry for a little bit, then push it against a dry surface (not the walls of your house, okay?), it will stick.

Q: Why is the space black and the sky blue?
A: About 20 miles above the Earth, the sky appears black. So what happens between there and here? Light, you might know, travels in waves. And the WAVES of different colors of light are different LENGTHS. Sunlight is a mixture of all those different colors. When the sunlight travels through the thickest part of the atmosphere, the short wavelengths of blue light get scattered. So what we see when we look at the sky during the daytime is the scattered blue light.

Q: What causes hiccups?
A: The  part to blame for your hiccups is the diaphraghm ( die-uh-fram). This is is a dome-shaped muscle at the bottom of your chest, and all hiccups start here.

The diaphragm almost always works perfectly. It pulls down when you inhale to help pull air into the lungs, and it pushes up when you exhale to help push air out of the lungs. But sometimes the diaphragm becomes irritated, and when this happens, it pushes up in a jerky way that makes your breath come out differently from how it normally does. When this irregular breath hits your voice box, you’re left with a big hiccup.
