Answering Young Children's Questions as a Determinant of Their Subsequent Question-Asking Behavior
Endsley, Richard C.; Clarey, Susan A.
Developmental Psychology, 11, 6, 863-864, Nov 75
The results of this study indicate that answering young children's questions increases the frequency with which they ask questions. The evidence also suggests that children use questions partially as a means of maintaining social contact and attention with a friendly adult after their information seeking efforts have been exhausted.
