Asking “Why?” is most children’s favourite question. And it should be! Children have such wonderful enquiring minds and they’re always wanting to know how things work; what makes the world the way it is; why are things in the world the way they are? Sometimes these difficult questions can catch a parent off-guard, like “Mom why is that lady so fat?”
But mostly and fortunately, science has an explanation for everything and we’re so excited to introduce you to Dr Drew Brain who will be featured each week on Parenting Hub. Dr Drew has the ability to ignite and excite little minds and has lots of stimulating and electrifying ideas and experiments that he’ll be sharing with us. So encourage your children to read his column and to write to him with their questions or to share fun and entertaining experiments that other children can try at home.
