Introduction:

Do you know why babies stare around so much? Well, the fact is that everyone is born with natural curiosity. They have the desire to learn, discover, and explore. It is the internal push that motivates a child to seek new experiences. This intrinsic drive is what encourages babies and toddlers to act in ways that we adults deem funny. When a two-year-old makes serious attempts to reach a box placed high up on a shelf, funny for us. For kids, it is their curiosity.

As an adult, do you wonder whether curiosity fades as one grows up? It does as age, formal learning, and external influences take over. Two of the main reasons that curiosity fades in children are disapproval from adults. It is our job as parents and adults to develop curiosity in children. So what can you do to develop and sustain curiosity in your child?

Surprises Galore

Pleasant surprises develop curiosity in your child. For example: Write a loving note and place it in their tiffin box or under the pillow or even at their place at the table.

Ruffle the Routine

Occasional tiny changes in everyday routine stimulate your child to think differently. It also arouses curiosity and the spirit of discovery..

Make a Date with Nature

Take your child to a garden full of flowers. Allow them to walk barefoot on the grass, chase butterflies, count the spots on ladybugs, hug trees. These learning opportunities urge your child to ask questions and remain curious.

Be Aware of Your Child’s Interests

Children give out visible cues about things that interest them more than others. Watch out for what your child prefers to do. This doesn’t always have to be usual activities. It could be collecting leaves, playing with animals and so on.

Be Ready to Answer

A curious child has many questions. Be ready to answer but first be ready with the answers. Know how to address their curiosity in order to develop it. Remember to check with your child whether you were able to answer their question.

Books are Friends

Introduce your child to books at an early age. This builds up curiosity and sustains it as she or he grows older. There’s so much to learn from books – irrespective of the subject. Your child also learns to focus and concentrate on a particular subject.

Listen and Dance to Music Together

Music promotes lateral thinking. When you make it a focus area, it has brilliant effects on your child’s development and curious mind.

Let Them Be Them

Let kids be kids. Let them explore their surroundings and be curious. If your child wishes to play with mud or in a puddle, allow her or him. Get them a pet, if possible, as this encourages responsibility and develops curiosity.

In Conclusion:

Your child is naturally curious. However, you need to sustain it so that it doesn’t fade away. When you put in time and effort, you see the benefits and rewards. Your child will be a fast learner, have a better sense of the outside world, and would be less impatient. Give it a shot and see for yourself!
