The Inquiring Mind In Children

ParentCircle

Children are curious by nature. Spend time with a child and chances are you will be subject to a lot of questions on almost everything that intrigues their minds. Often, it is said that an inquiring mind is essential to live a life that is above mediocre. But how do we develop an inquiring mind in children? Because, one big problem we have today is that many of us have stopped thinking for ourselves.

The huffingtonpost, in one of its articles, has listed 6 ways to develop an inquiring mind in children:

  • Convince them that it is fine to be curious and that we are using very little of the enormous potential of our mind.
  • Encourage them to learn something new each day.
  • Tell children that it is okay to ask questions most of the time. It simply means that children are starting to learn and are asking questions to find the answers to many of the new things they come across daily.
  • Let them take life as an adventure where every moment must be seized.

Livestrong says brain development shows a child’s increasing ability to understand the environment. As children grow and develop, they learn many new things that aid them in solving problems in their daily life.

Many parents don’t know, however, that by simply responding to their baby’s cues, they are helping their newborn’s brain develop. Know about more ways to develop the inquiring mind of children by flipping through the pages of this ClipBook.
