100 Funny Questions to Ask Kids About Life(Get Them Talking)

Children are the purest souls; the pile of mud waiting to be moulded. These days children are more advanced in knowledge- what we learnt in our 20s, they know it even before they are teens. 

If you are babysitting or are just curious to question them and prevent them from getting bored then you are at the right place! Asking relevant questions to children can help them broaden their horizons and become more open-minded. 

You can either get them to think about solutions to problems or you can pique their interest. The answers gleaned from their responses can help parents or guardians or us in enriching their lives and making the best decisions for them.
