As most of my readers know, I work with children and older adults. Children ask questions. “Why” is a common question. Older adults also ask questions though of a different nature. As I provide services in assisted living facilities the questions tend to be similar to these: What’s for lunch? Do I know you?
Asking questions is important. They make us aware of gaps in our knowledge. Questioning allows us, encourages us to explore. Questions can drive research and learning.
