Young children live in a world of curiosity and exploration. There is excitement and laughter as they new things all the time. They are full of questions and want answers. Just think of how many times you asked “Why?” growing up.
But when does that stop?
Perhaps it is related to the fact that children hear the word “No” 400 times a day on average, according to some research. When we deny others the chance to question things, challenge, explore and learn, we conform to the status quo.
When you encounter a problem today, instead of going in with an immediate “No”, instead can you think, “Where can I ask ‘Why?’ and be open to ‘Yes’?”
