One of the things I have noticed as we all go back to routine and school is that it can be difficult finding out about the happenings of the day. The question of ‘How’s you day been?’ is often a monosyllabic, negative answer as it is usually asked at a time when the kids are hungry and tired! I end up getting a negative, limited window into their day.
I came across these questions that I thought would be fun to try instead:
Who was kind to you today?
What brought you joy or laughter today?
What was your favourite part of the day? Why?
I’m looking forward to trying these tonight!
(The kid’s might roll their eyes at me, but I’m willing to take the risk!)
