Kids ask a WHOPPING 10,000 questions each year

A new poll by baby product company Munchkin has found that kids ask at least 27 questions a day!

This is equivalent to approximately 10,000 questions a year. And not just questions like “Where’s my shoe?” we are talking deep and meaningful questions like “Why is the sky blue?” and “Why does the earth move?”, “Where do fish sleep?”.

The poll found that the hardest questions asked by children include, ‘why do I have to do what you tell me?,’ ‘where do babies come from?’ or ‘why can’t I stay up as late as you?’

The poll of 1500 people found that three-quarters of parents feel they didn’t have the knowledge to answer most of the general questions.

Baby product company Munchkin, which conducted the poll, said: ‘It shows how naturally curious kids are about the world.’

Another tricky question is always when the kids ask if Santa is real. We have a great article on “How To Tell Kids About Santa Without Destroying Their Trust” check it out HERE. 

There is a right time to talk to kids though!

According to Child sleep and behaviour consultant, Mylee Zschech, bedtime is actually the perfect time for children to open up.

“The bedtime routine brings a feeling of intimacy, of closeness with your parents, which can make a child feel more inclined to open up,” Mylee said. Read more on her thoughts HERE.
