Whyzz – For All Their Little or Big Questions.
By Audrey van Petegem, Contributing Editor
Have you ever noticed the younger the child the more questions they have? My two young daughters are full of them. From the easy one like “why do I have to brush my teeth?” to more difficult ones “what is tapioca?”. Uh…
I learned from my son, who is now a high school senior, that all questions are important, no matter what. It’s my answers that need some fine tuning. I discovered this great website called Whyzz.com. It is simple to use and all answers are written so that they are perfectly understood by children. For each answer there is also an exploration segment that offers fun related bits of info.
Most of my daughters’ questions tend to be asked while in the car or when running errands. You’ll be glad to know that Whyzz.com is optimized for most popular smart phones devices, such as the Iphone, Blackberry, Palm Treo and Nokia. Just type whyzz.com in the browser of your phone and get the whyzz answers on the go. Now, I no longer have to answer questions that I don’t know the answer to with my standard “because God made it like that” answer. Whyzz is way more satisfying for all of us.
Oh, and fyi, tapioca is a starch that comes from the root of a type of plant known to most people as “cassava”. Now we know.
