Why do preschoolers ask questions?

It turns out it's because they want to know the answers, and they are more satisfied if given an explanatory asnwer than if not. If you explain something, they are likely to ask follow-up questions. If you answer without explaining, they are more likely to repeat the question.

The researchers say asking why, why, why, why is different; that is just wanting engagement.
