Kids' Questions

Kids ask some of the cutest, toughest, and silliest questions that adults don’t have answer or unable to give a satisfactory answer. Here are some:

1. Where did I come from?

2. Why Do You and Mommy Fight?

3. What is God?

4. How Much Money Do We Have?

5. Why Do People Die?

6. Why are we moving?

7. Why wasn’t I invited to that party?

8. What is Heaven?

9. How does a man get inside a TV?

10. Can I marry mommy when I grow up?

11. If I am not tired, why should I go to sleep?

12. Will a shot hurt?

13. How do thunder and lightning work?

14. Is this a boy chicken or a girl chicken?

15. Why do we eat animals?

16. Why do I have to go to school?

17. Can I get a cell phone?

18. Who will take care of me if you die?

19. Why can’t I stay home alone?

20. Why do I have to say thank you?

If you know or heard of a “cute” or “tough” or “silly” question from a kid, please let me know. Thanks.

And, finally a cute question from a grown-up kid:

When a doctor doctors a doctor, does the doctor doing the doctoring doctor as the doctor being doctored wants to be doctored or does the doctor doing the doctoring doctor as he wants to doctor?

Answer: That’s a good question. (Translation: I don’t know the answer.)


  1. Some questions that kids throw at you make you think so hard. Here's one that my daughter asked her friend. The friend and my daughter (both 4 yrs old) were talking about God. The friend kept referring to God as daughter immediately said, why do you say HE??? Do you know if God is a He/She????

  2. Thanks for your comments Jayashree. Your daughter, LG's, question is excellent. Super.

    when i was a kid i used to ask my mother Q like
    - ye maths kisne banayi?
    -goddess saraswati ko english aati hai?
    -where do houseflies sleep?
    -why dont mosquitoes sleep at night?

    and many more... but my mom would laugh and laugh laugh..

    thanks for taking down the memory lane!

  4. lol for the post SG
    and I remember for Q1 my mom said that kids come from hospital and then I started pestering my mom to get me a brother from the hospital or I will go and get one :)
    my friends mom told her that kids come from the sky and for a long time she pictured kids dropping from sky and people catching them

  5. LOL. Ohh u bet! Lil p asks the weirdest questions.. its tough to keep a straight face sometimes.

  6. Kids do ask very good questions, so innocent yet profound.
    Can't remember any at the moment, but I do remember some of my brother's observations while he was 3 or 4 yrs old...

    He used to go wandering in the garden and question about the colour combinations and shapes of all kinds of insects and catepillars....

  7. Nice list. The last one was a tongue twister and was like a brain teaser.

    On our frequent transfers my son asked a question to my hubby?. Why do you say you are transferred. aren't you in the same company. Only I am sent to diifferent schools. :)
    Nice post SG, made me nostalgic.

  8. Kids - don't you just love them.

    I feel quite inspired to do my own post on all those questions to which you simply don't know the answers. Of course, I'll include a link back to this, I hope you don't mind.

  9. yes..Kid's questions are straight forward and they put questions for which we don't have answers...reminds me of my own childhood :-))
