A young child seems to have an endless number of Why questions. Parents attempt many answers seeking to help their children in the early years. As children grow older they begin to stop asking why either because of their parents unresponsiveness or simply because they begin to figure it out on their own. Are they in fact able to figure out cause and effect, Ive read articles in the past that infer that this part of the brain isn’t fully developed until a child is 10 years old. Often this begins the assumption/presumption years often filled in with faulty thinking, poor problem purification and creating misunderstanding and confusion.
As we all know the why questions can lead to questions like Why am I here? Why me? Why are the forces in the world pulling people apart rather than bringing them together? To know our why is to know our purpose and mission in life. What can be a more important question than Why? Let’s create environments where why questions are valued explored and reinforced. By doing this we can count on Value Driven /Purpose Driven people!
