Kids. No one knows where they come from, but it's undeniable that some of us have them, and they ask a lot of questions! 

Stephen Colbert wants to help, so he started a segment where he answers real questions from real kids, sent in by parents who could really use a break.

If you’ve got a kid who's got questions, post a video to social media using the hashtag #ColbertKidQuestions, and include your child’s name and age! 

Don’t want to post on social media? You can upload your video to us directly at this link.

Stephen just might answer them in the next edition of The Late Show’s Colbert Kid Questions!
