• hi moms,

    you know that asking questions is what kids do. kids have a constant hunger for information. and it’s our job to help satisfy that yearning for learning—by answering questions.

    so under this topic, write how you answer your kids' specific questions and help parents by providing witty answers that go beyond “because” and “it just is” and “i don’t know".

    one day, my 7-year-old nephew asked me the question "why is the sky blue?" fortunately i was prepared for the answer :)

    my answer: throughout the atmosphere, blue light is scattered in all directions by the tiny molecules of air. blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. this is why we see a blue sky most of the time.

    why do people get sick?

    answer: most of the time it's because of germs, viruses and bacteria. these invisible creatures can find their way into our body through the air we breath, the things we touch or we eat. our body usually fights them off but sometimes it can't so we get sick. when people get sick there are also some ways to get well too.
