How Was Your School Day? Improved Communication With Your Child
It's fine to ask your child in general terms about the day went but experts say that it is also important to ask questions detailed enough to elicit answers longer than one word. Try these variations of, "How was school today?":
-- What is the most interesting thing that you learned today? -- What's your favorite subject right now? -- Who is your favorite person to play with during recess? -- What's the hardest part of the day for you? -- re there any special projects you're working on in class that you feel you need help with?
These questions require more specific answers and are likely to promote better communication between you and your child.
