Psychologist Jovita Maria Ferliana has several tips for you:

1. Appeciate questions from your children. It means they have great interests with their surroundings. It also shows they are attentive to others.

2. Answer the questions with honesty. If you do not know, say clearly that you do not know. 

3. You can research together. You can take your children to the book store. Besides that, you can browse internet together.

1. Don't give made up answers.

2. Don't say harsh words or use high tones to your children. They don't want to embarass you with their questions. 

3. Don't be lazy. Don't make excuses to avoid the questions.
