Here’s a recent conversation with my 6-year-old daughter, Avi.
Avi: “I have a question for you.”
David: “Great – what?”
Avi: “But before I ask it. Can you not ask me what I think before you give me the answer?”
My daughter knows me well. She has my number! And I take comfort that she finds me rather predictable.
Asking Questions Shows Curiosity
I’m thrilled she’s curious and asks a lot of questions. What I’ve found is that in many cases, she knows the answers to the questions she’s asking. Or, at least has a great starting thought to the answer.
