  • depends on what it is... If it is something like 'Is dinner ready yet?' And I am still at the stove I will answer with 'I don't know? Are we eating yet?'

  • No...I either give them a silly response or sometimes I ask them what they think the answer is. Not in a snotty way, but just to get them to think.

  • I answer them all. Sometimes I will say "what was my answer the last time you asked? My answer isn't going to change."

  • No, I give them a silly answer and see what other silliness develops!

  • No, I try to make them figure it out on their own.

  • Only when she says why on everything. She'll ask a question I give her an answer and she says why and and tell her why and she she's why again.... it goes on forever....

  • My 11 year old is a professional question asker,lol. I don't ignore him but I have told him to get a notebook and everytime he thinks of a question to ask and I can't answer it to write it down in the notebook and later on he can google up all his little questions and figure it out for himself. Works well :)
