How to Raise an Inquisitive Child

The more curious your child, the more they are likely to learn. Babies are instinctively more inquisitive, as they are starting to suss out what thing are and how they work. However, parents should try and encourage their child’s inquisitiveness as they grow up and encourage them to ask questions and explore. Here are some tips from an independent school near Chorleywood.

It’s important to remember that you are your child’s biggest role model, so if you demonstrate inquisitiveness, they will be more likely to reflect that behaviour. To do this, you should try and ask lots of random, thoughtful questions where possible, like “How do you think chocolate is made?” or “Where do you think rain comes from?” and encourage your child to find the answer for you. This will let them know that it’s perfectly normal to ask even the most obscure questions.

Make sure your questions are open-ended and require more than a one-word answer. This will encourage your child to put some genuine thought into what you are asking, rather than just replying with a yes or no.

If your child has questions and thought of their own, try your best to listen and answer if you can, rather than shrugging them off. They will be reluctant to ask you questions in the future if they think you’re unwilling to help them find the answer. Don’t be afraid to tell them the truth if you don’t know what the answer is; the two of you can do some research together to find out. Let your child know when you think they’ve asked a great question.

Another way to nurture your child’s curiosity is to allow them to experience new things on a regular basis. This could be as simple as cooking a new recipe with different herbs and spices. They won’t be inquisitive if they become accustomed to doing the same things over and over again.
