Questions are to be encouraged. Children have a natural curiosity. This is a good thing. My post this week about children’s questions during school visits, and the top class comments left, had me chortling for HOURS.
I’ve heard questions that are hard to answer (‘what are ants? WHY are ants?’).
And questions at inopportune moments (just as you have your hand on the bedroom door and you’ve said goodnight – ‘what is god? what is government? will I die? will YOU die? what if there was a biscuit as big as a planet?’).
Nothing quite as strange as a small boy who was following his mum around the supermarket the other day. I kept bumping into them, and he kept this up throughout their visit:
‘Mum Mum are badgers human Mum are badgers human are badgers human Mum Mum are badgers human Mum are badgers human are badgers human Mum Mum…’
So, what is the oddest funniest most challenging question YOU’VE been asked? Do add a comment and share, I would really love to hear!
