Can Ask a Grammatically Correct Question (35-41 Months)

Before age 3, children’s questions are generally incomplete, depending on words like “where” or “what” and a rising tone at the end of the sentence. Around age 3, children begin to use more complete constructions. For example, a younger child might ask, “Where doggy?” while an older child may ask, “Where did doggy go?” or “Why it’s not working?”
