Children, especially at kindergarten age, ask questions like why and why, and they force you to the point where you cannot answer. We know that you often come across questions that you cannot answer or do not know how to explain, although you can often answer them. But you should know that you should not feel yourself in the obligation to answer these questions, because you are a human being and you may know things.

There are two important things to consider when answering your children's questions. One of them is to be honest, that you do not answer the questions you do not know; the second is that your answers should be fair. Remember that the unrealistic answers you give will harm your child more!

You should also take this fact into account when teaching your child science. Try to give your children as much visual experience as possible. Here are two examples for you…

● Then ask your child to think, neden Why do you think you couldn't move the other one?.. “Because it was heavier, Çocuk the child will answer.
● You can then extend your ideas to your child by saying ter scales are used to measure weight ”.
