In essence children are natural philosophers, they have
the desire to ask. Children have a kind of philosophical intuition that already exists naturally within him, he tends to doubt an adult's answer so that an answer is not received simply but it will be tried or felt like groping, putting it into the mouth and or imitating it in the form of movement. Often children invite an adult or philosophical dialogue teacher, but the teacher is not
ready to answer according to the child's ratio. This paper is an engineering bid idea that educators should start with philosophical thinking that is comprehensive or comprehensive. This paper would like to describe the efforts of a teacher to develop a child's critical attitude through philosophical education, taught to question everything; the child's critical attitude will arise. It's time the child is not only told about everything that is real, even the non-real also the child needs to be told to start thinking. It is no longer the child is called smart if able to memorize the lesson but without ever criticizing what he read. In parallel, teachers should also prepare themselves to answer critical child questions that are appropriate to the child's reason. Teachers must be able to cultivate a child's critical attitude by always responding to the curiosity of the child. Each answer is a possibility so the child builds his idea to grasp the meaning of the teacher's answer.
