No parent is born to know exactly what answers to give to their child when they begin asking why.
It’s fun and awkward at the same time because they can ask something completely and utterly out of the blue, and you stand there, not being sure on how to answer or how to react!
Most common hours for asking the weirdest stuff is when its bedtime and you really want your little angel to sleep as quickly as possible to have a little ‘’me’’ time or just sleep in the hallway while walking to go have that me time (motherhood is hard!).
Right there, when you change your little one into their <jammies> they ask the weirdest questions, like, << does the sun sleep? >> or << does the moon feel lonely? >> . Although some questions can be hard to answer, if you use your imagination you might be able to pull it off!
However when your puddle of joy starts asking you <<why?>>, it can be an endless loop. Because they why may never, ever stop. There you are left wondering, if your little one is curious, or it’s just that easy to say << why? >> every one second!
How to handle it? Is there an ideal way of making it not go out of control but be educational at the same time? Rumour has it that there is a magical phrase to avoid this tricky situation and turn it into your favour!
In my opinion, there is no written rule that guarantees to tell you exactly how to handle a situation with your child. That’s why being a parent is the hardest and the best job in the whole world.
