Ways to Ask Your Kids ‘So How Was School Today?’ Without Asking Them ‘So How Was School Today?’


Most days when you ask your kids, “So how was school today?”, do you get one word answers like “okay” or “fine”?

Here are some helpful ways to get into a more in depth conversation to help you learn more about your child’s day.

  • What was the best thing that happened at school today?
  • What was your favorite part of lunch?
  • Who is the funniest person in your _____ class?  What makes him/her so funny?
  • If I called your ______teacher tonight, what would she tell me about you?
  • Tell me something that made you laugh today.
  • How did you help someone today?
  • When was a time that you got bored today?

The more we can get our children to talk to us, the easier it is to get them to talk to us about difficult topics.
