Parent: “How was your day?”
Parent: “What did you do today?”
Child: “I dunno…”
If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone! I’ve surprisingly gotten this response from my kidlets quite a bit this school year. Obviously they didn’t just do “nothing” at school all day… as a parent, I feel it is my duty to take a special interest in my child’s day. I think it’s important to be involved, show that we care, ask questions and look for opportunities to teach whenever we can. Making this extra effort also helps stay tuned in to any problems that need to be addressed such as questionable behavior or issues that may be arising between friends . Sometimes it’s easy to get into a natural routine of simply asking “How was your day?” and nothing more. This has been the case for us lately so I decided to come up with a list of new and specific questions to get the kids talking and hopefully spark some fun conversations!
