A survey of 1,500 people has revealed kids ask a whopping 73 questions every day - half of which parents can't answer.


And while a third of parents said they found the constant barrage of questions slightly tiring, 4 out of 10 also agreed they were actually pretty proud of their child's interest in the world ?

Unsurprisingly, the most common AND most difficult to answer were these:

  • Why do people die?
  • Where did I come from?
  • What is God?
  • How was I made?
  • What does “we can’t afford it” mean?
  • Is Father Christmas real?
  • Why do I have to go to school?
  • When you die who will I live with?
  • Why is the sky blue?
  • Why can’t I stay up as late as you?

Hmmmm, who can relate? ☝️☝️☝️?

The poll, commissioned by Argos and the Chad Valley Tots Town range, also revealed that children are at their most inquisitive aged 4 and that boys and girls are equally curious as each other.
