Children ask an average of 300 questions daily, very inquisitive little human beings! Girls aged four are the most curious, asking 390 questions per day – averaging a question every one minute 56 seconds of their waking day, Daily Mail reported.  

Funniest thing happened this morning. My 4 year old asked me why I don’t have a beard like her dad. It is simply amazing how their mind works.

From an early age, children desire to understand the world around them. Rather than get irritated by their endless questions, Parents should nurture and encourage this curiosity. Asking questions is an effective way of gaining knowledge and insight.

What’s responsible for this curiosity? It is the rapid brain growth in early childhood. In fact, 90% of brain growth occurs in the first 5 years of life. Just about every aspect of a child’s brain development is governed by both nature and nurture this includes those extra classes we pay so much for, after school lessons, and even educational toys or games. Nature, on the other hand, is what the child possesses innately. Both inherited and what he eats. Yes, nutrition also plays a vital role in the mental not just physical development of your child.

There are certain nutrients that help build up the brain. For example, DHA, which is an essential omega 3 fatty acid found in the brain. DHA supports developmental milestones such as speech, learning, and thinking. Children need a minimum of 100mg of DHA per day, however, most of the time their regular diet contains insufficient DHA. A typical daily diet of a child comprises Bread/Cereal (0mg of DHA), 1 Egg (14mg), Rice (0mg), Vegetable (0mg), Tuna fish (41mg) and chicken (21mg). Based on this, the approximate amount of DHA is 76mg of DHA which is insufficient.

So supplement your child’s diet with Peak 456 which is specially formulated for children aged 4-6 years old. It contains DHA and other key nutrients that support your child’s continuing brain development and physical growth

    Please let that curiosity continue. If you don’t know, just say you don’t know. It’s sad seeing kids shut down for just asking questions.

    At least with kids in Naija, you can dodge the question(s) using shakara or sending them on errand. In the west, kids are super persistent, bold, and unrelenting in their gbeborun vices. They ask for your age, your height, your marital status etc. One kid (girl.. born to Nigerian parents) saw me at a party and asked if I had a girlfriend, I said no. She asked why and I told her I wasn’t ready. She went silent for a bit , only to come back ask if I would date her sister (her sister is 15, me 28) or her mom (happily married)..Since that day, once I see kids aged 4-8 getting unecessarily friendly, I just give them chance….You don’t know what is going to come out of their mouth.
