What did you do at school today?  Nothing.  If this is the response you receive after you ask your child how their day was, try some of these question techniques.  No phone, TV, video games, or iPad until three questions are answered! J

  • What did you play at recess? Who did you play with?
  • Tell me three fun things you did today.
  • Who did you sit next to at lunch?
  • Tell me one funny thing your teacher did today.
  • What was the coolest thing that happened?
  • What was the strangest thing that happened?
  • Tell me what made you laugh today.
  • How were you helpful today to someone else? Was someone helpful to you?
