Curiositycultivates an active mind. While you might sometimes fear that you’ll explode if your child asks you “why?” one more time, overall, those questions are a good thing. They’re a sign of an active mind that’s constantly analyzing the world and trying to figure it out. Admit it: You’d be concerned if your child accepted everything around her with nary a protest or murmur! As long as a child is curious, she’ll be exposed to new facts and ideas, and the metaphorical wheels in her head will be in continuous motion. This is the kind of mental activity that fosters true and deep learning, not just good grades.
