Human beings are curious by nature, meaning that we are interested in learning new things through experimenting. Children are always investigating and want to know how and why things happen. Although we do everything to explain things as much as possible, it is sometimes not enough for them to really learn.

So which is the best way to teach children? The best way is by doing things: practice, not theory, experience, not observation. That’s why we must motivate them to investigate.

The parent’s job is to promote children’s curiosity. Curiosity brings many brain benefits. Most of us ignore that dopamine is activated when a child is experimenting with things. This chemical release helps people remember information and stimulates the hippocampus, responsible for short and long-term memory.

Allowing children´s curiosity to be aroused is leading them to a life of constant learning. Children whose research process is banned will not be interested in learning new things. Their learning processes will be seriously affected.
