Kids have a lot of questions. The “why” questions I've found is most popular. Back in Boise I work for the YMCA as an after school child care worker. Needless to say, when it's you and 2 other adults with 35+ kids a lot of “why” questions come up. “Why can't we do that?...well why? Why!?” This last week I simply googled “why!?” and came across a website dedicated to answering the “why” questions kids have. Here were some of my favorites:
