Nurturing Curiosity

Nurturing Curiosity - An Everyday Story for Childhood 101There is something about preschoolers, isn’t there? The questions fly thick and fast, sometimes too fast for a bewildered mama to keep up; ‘What’s that flashing light for Mummy?’ ‘How did that building get so tall Mummy?’ ‘What are these bugs doing here Mummy?’ and on and on they go.

Curiosity; seeing something for the first time, wanting to know what it is, how it works, why it is there, what can be done with it, is definitely a trait we want to nurture….

…..

Today I’m sharing some of the things we do to nurture, and I guess, protect, Jack’s sense of wonder, his curiosity, over on Childhood 101.

At three (almost 4) most everything catches Jack’s attention. However, as we get older, that sense of wonder seems to diminish, doesn’t it? This thought from Rachel Carson, I think says it so beautifully:

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.”
