Talk to Children

They go to school five days a week.  A lot goes on there, but what exactly?  Ask the kind of questions that will help you get to know more about your child and his or her school.

1.  Which class do you like the most and why?
2.  Do you hope to do that sort of work when you are older?  Why or why not?
3.  What do you eat for lunch?  What is your favorite meal?
4.  Do you have a best friend?  What is it about her/him that makes this person your favorite?
5.  Is there anyone you don't like and why?
6.  Do you have a favorite teacher?  What do you like about that teacher?
7.  Which day do you have most of your tests?  Is there something I can help you with to make it easier to study?

The questions can go on and on, but you get the picture.  Find out what is happening with your child at school.  You can ask little ones, "What made you happy today?  What made you sad?  Who is it that you like or don't like?  What did your teacher say to you today?  What did you like the most about your day?  What made you angry?  Did you draw/read/play/sing/write/take a nap/sit by yourself?"
