Allow them to be open

It should never feel like it has to be forced, as children tend to make a lot of decisions for themselves, but allowing that openness will peak their curiosity. At a very young age you’ll notice your child turning their head at peculiar noises, things they see around the house or outside, or reaching towards your car keys. These are examples of showing inquisitiveness that will allow them to grow as they learn. Encourage this by talking to them about what they are showing an interest in.

Follow your child’s lead

If your child asks to help them with a teddy bear’s picnic, or to make a tea party for example, give them a hand and take them through the process. It gives them the chance to be independent and to increase their confidence, as well as trying out life skills with their parents. Let them make the suggestions and ask them how they want you to get involved so they can take the lead.

Visit the library

Reading is a great way to help children discover new worlds. Both real and imaginary places they can lose themselves in. Reading clubs held at libraries and reading challenges are great ways to let your child open their eyes to a world of imagination they can purely create for themselves. It’s also a great way to develop their comprehension and English Literature development to help them in their studies.

There are many ways you can promote inquisitiveness in your home, that can let your child grow in both school and in their daily lives and on an emotional level you’re able to see your child develop in multiple different ways.
