Children are so innocent, sweet and very curious little creatures. Children are probably more curious about things than adults realize. A recent study of 1,000 primary-school-age children reveals the top 10 questions children would like to have answered.

"Do ghosts exist?", "Is Santa Claus real?" and "Where do babies come from?" all made the Top 10. "Who invented money?" and "How do planes stay in the air?" are two questions children would like to know the answers to but they weren't popular enough to make the Top 10.

The study was in conjunction with the History channel's Mystery Season which aired earlier this year.

  1. Do ghosts exist?
  2. Do aliens exist?
  3. Is Santa Clause real?
  4. Is the Loch Ness monster real?
  5. Does the tooth fairy exist?
  6. Do fairies exist?
  7. Do UFOs exist?
  8. Where do babies come from?
  9. Where do people go when they die?
  10. Do unicorns exist?

SWNSDigital.com conducted this study before the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. Children may have questions and concerns about their safety and the safety of their family during these times. The American Academy of Children & Adolescent Phychiatry suggests being honest with children about the pandemic, but only if they ask.
