Do you often hear questions like these? We long to honor and nurture our children's curiosity, but it can be difficult finding time to research and answer such questions.
Amanda Soule, in her new book The Rhythm of the Family, suggests an "I Wonder Why" bulletin board where questions are posted to be researched and possibly answered at a later date. What a great idea to let our children know their questions are welcome and it addresses the more practical matter of remembering to answer them. If you don't have space for a bulletin board, what about putting questions in a jar, a pretty bowl, or hanging them from a tree branch? There are many ways to easily incorporate an "I Wonder Why" space into our homes.
