Ten Great Questions to Get Your Child Talking

Ten Great Questions to Get Your Child Talking

By: Tom Morgan

When I was a kid, I remember my Mom always asking me a TON of questions after basketball practice or Boy Scouts.  Like most kids over the age of ten, I always answered her with one word answers like ‘good’ and ‘yeah’ and the famous ‘I don’t know’ answer.  Do you have those kind of conversations with your child?


According to Parenting.com, there are some very unique questions you can ask your child to start conversation and, more importantly, get them talking!


Here are some examples:


1. What do you like daydreaming about?
2. What makes you happy?
3. What do you look forward to when you wake up?
4. Do you ever think about renaming the colors of your crayons?
5. What character makes you laugh the most?
6. What’s your Superhero name and what powers do you have?
7. If you could grow anything in the yard, what would it be?
8. What makes you feel brave?
9. What makes you feel loved?
10. How do you show people you care?
