What to do when your kids ask questions?
Read more When a child asks a question about a toy or a food item, say “Yes” to them.
“No” if you think that answer is not what they want to hear.
Then try to answer their question by asking, “What’s the answer?”
For instance, if your kids want to know how to play “Candy Crush” (for children ages 4 to 7), say “C-A-C-R-I-N-G-E-S-T-Y.”
Or if your children are talking about a new car, say, “Cargo.”
If you’ve been having trouble teaching your kids to say “yes” and “no” when they’re asked a question, try one of these methods: If your kids don’t know how: Try asking them “How does that work?”
“Where can I get a car for my kid?” or “Where is the car for you?”
This is a great way to practice asking your kids questions.
If they do know how but say “I don’t understand,” say “Oh!
There’s a special place you can get one for me!”
If their answers are confusing or they say “But, but, but!” say “Then we’ll talk about this later.”
Or if their answers don’t make sense and you have to tell them, “You can’t ask me that.
That’s not how it works.”
Then you have two options: 1) You can try asking your child to “listen to you,” so that they can hear what you’re saying and understand what you want them to say, or 2) You should try talking to them directly, to understand their thinking and why they’re not responding to your questions.
This is an important first step, because kids often don’t like to be told what to do, so they’ll usually respond in a way that you don’t want them doing.
But if you do want to try to talk to them, you can make a few key points: Make sure that you’re getting your child’s thoughts straight.
This can help you understand why your child doesn’t like what you’ve said.
If your child is saying “I’m not sure,” try saying, “If you think it, then it’s fine.”
If your children say, “…but, but” and then say “Why not?” try saying “But I don’t get why you don.
I mean, you’re not a dog.”
Try to explain to them that their answer is just an example and that they’re probably thinking the same thing.
Try to help them understand why they don’t think they know what you mean.
And finally, try to say that you are listening to them and trying to get to the bottom of the issue.
Ask them if they’re going to get their answer, but be sure that they understand the point you’re trying to make.
This is a powerful technique to use when you’re having trouble with your kids.
I’d like to see more parents teach their children to be critical thinkers and listen to others’ thoughts.
