Most of the times parents are so busy with the responsibilities that they are burdened with, that they completely forget to ask their kids a simple question- “How was your day?”
It is a simple conversation starter to get your kids talking. However, if you don’t normally ask your kids about their day and they feel a bit aloof, here are some questions you can ask your kids that will surely help you and your kid bond and talk for hours. There’s nothing more powerful than a fun and casual conversation between parents and their kids to get their kid to open up easily.
Remember that while parenting is challenging and filled with responsibilities that you weren’t ready for, it is also fun when you can bond easily with your child.
