Sorry, but kids are curious.

The average child asks something like 457 questions a day. It. Never. Ends. Lol.

 

If it makes you feel any better, my daughter (who isn’t even two yet) has literally started asking “why?” every time I say ANYTHING to her. Haha. Oh, the joys of children.

I feel your pain, lol. My three year old wont stop talking, and asking questions. Now, for instance, she heard something about independence day, and she wont stop asking continuous questions about an event that wont take place in another 67 days!! God help me, lol.

How was she as a toddler? I need some hope, lol.

That’s part of her language development, which I assume you want to foster.

@Glow girl:  But it’s a good thing! That means they are willing to learn and they are curious. Take advantage of it!

Depending on the questions he/she is asking you, maybe you could deflect to a “why do YOU think [whatever their question was]?” It will make them think critically about a problem or question. Then based on their answer you’ll know if they are just attention hungry or really want to talk about things. If you’re comfortable with it, you could teach them how to use a search engine to find the answers to their questions too.

@Glow girl:  That’s still part of language development.  The more you talk to kids, the better they do in school and on IQ tests.

@Glow girl:  This is normal 9 year old kid behaviour. They *should* be asking questions. I happen to really like my 9 year old’s questions, because it gives me an understanding of her perspective on things, which is pretty neat. Why not start listening to her questions and answering them?

Kids are curious, it’s what they do.  They are asking you because they trust you and know that they can turn to you.  I would recommend looking up answer with her, even if you already know.  It teaches her to start find out for herself.  Enjoy it now though because when they get older you’ll be lucky to even know how their day is going.
