What’s your favourite colour?

“Dad, what’s your favourite Color? My favourite colour is red. Is yours red too?”

I don’t have a favourite colour, I like all different colours depending on what the item is.

A random question from my son, which led to a lengthy discussion about colours. To be honest most conversation with my son after he asks random questions can be of some length. The “why” question gets asked a lot.

Having spent a good time discussing colours and how different people like different colours, and you don’t have to have a favourite colour, it’s ok to like a range of colours he was still quite confused on the subject. This got me thinking on how children interpret different things, and how as a parent I can better help my son understand things.
