To Mom: Why, oh why?
Where does the light go when it goes out? Where does the sky end? Why aren't birds electrocuted on wires? How do we know God is real if we can't see him?
Kids will ask anything and everything. As a matter of fact, a British study found that mothers get asked 288 questions every day by their children between the ages of 2 and 10. That's 23 questions between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. Or 105,120 questions a year.
The report by Littlewoods.com found that 4-year-old girls are the most curious, asking 390 questions per day – an average of one question every minute and 56 second during waking hours. On the other end, 9-year-old boys ask 144 questions a day.
Most kids – 82 percent – ask mom first, according to the study. Probably because fathers tend to say, “Go ask your mom.”
They say there's no such thing as a dumb question. When it comes to kids, this saying is surely true.
