How do I handle that stage that my child goes through of asking constant questions?

My child always wants to ask questions constantly. As a parent I love questions! Questions are an expression of their wonder and curiosity — and that's just what you want to cultivate. Questions are the best way a kid can ask for my attention. However, when my child tends to ask these questions constantly which is starting to wear me down after a tiring day at work. When I complained to my friend, he told me it is normal and this is the stage they ask this kind of question. I don't know how to handle this situation.

The question phase is hard to get through. What you can do is give them a certain amount of time that you are willing to answer questions, like on the way to school or whenever you are in the car. Or you could have your child write the questions down and then every day you learn everything you can to answer a certain question, which would teach them about researching different topics. Also, try distracting your child with an activity of some kind, like playing tag or hide and seek, or by playing their favorite song in the car to get them thinking about something else.
