Many parents stumble when asked math and science questions by their children. They are unsure of the answers. This articles looks at 10 questions many parents fear to answer. It also examines how parents can approach to answer the tough questions.
1. Where do babies come from?
This is a question that is consistently asked by curious and inquisitive children. Many parents find very unusual and inaccurate answers. The best way to answer this question is to use resources that are age appropriate.
2. Why is the moon visible during the day?
Many parents do not know the answer to this question when asked by children. Not many of us would know the answer either unless we have researched it. The reason for this is because of the moon’s rotation and the role the sun plays in lifting it.
3. Why is the sky blue?
We may have been asked this question numerous times. We feel stumped on this question with no concrete answer. The true answer is because of the light (of many colors) is divided into particles in the atmosphere. Blue light is sent out more than the other colors.
4. Will aliens be ever discovered?
Children are fascinated by aliens. They believe that aliens exist in this world and can invade earth at any time. This is a question that really cannot be answered. One thing parents could mention is the possibility of life on Mars. They could also add how it is far from earth and not easily accessible.
5. How do airplanes fly?
