10 Unique Ways to Ask Kids “How Was Your Day?”
Check out these great and unique ways to ask kids “How was your day?” Excellent tips!
As a mom, can you share my frustration when you ask, “How was your day?” and your kids reply by saying “fine.” Nothing is more frustrating than trying to pull details about what they did at school all day! Instead of going through the same loop of asking how was your day and them not saying anything, here are ten unique ways to ask them how was your day instead!
What was the funniest thing that happened today?
This is an excellent light-hearted question to ask your kids! It will encourage them to share some of the funny school memories that made them laugh during the day.
Who did you sit by today at lunch?
This is not only an excellent way to learn who your child is hanging out with, but also if they’re feeling lonely. You can even ask a follow-up question such as what did you eat or what did you guys talk about?
What was the best thing about your day?
This is an excellent question for your younger children! You can also follow up by asking what the worst part of their day was.
What did you learn in class today?
If your child has multiple subjects, consider asking what they learned in each subject today. If they are struggling to come with an idea, ask them what they remember from the lesson instead.
Was there something that challenged you today?
This is a great question to ask! This can often help you learn about difficulties they may be having in school too.
Did you have any jobs to do in the classroom today?
This one won’t apply to older children but works excellent with elementary kids!
What was the book about that your teacher read?
This one won’t apply to older kids, so you may want to rephrase to what book did you read in class today for older children.
What new fact did you learn today?
This is one of my favorite conversation questions to do with my kids! Especially with my older kids. This gets the conversation going and will help them talk more openly about what they learn in school.
Who did you spend the most time with today?
This is an excellent way to learn about your kid’s friends and how they are doing in school. You can ask them more about what kind of activities they did together and if they made new friends.
How would you rate your day 1-10?
If your child had a bad day, this could be a great way to find out! Ask them to rate their day and discuss why it doesn’t get a high score on certain days. This forces them to come up with an answer and help work through some of the problems they may be having in class.
You don’t have to beg your kids to tell you about their day any longer! With these questions, you’ll get an answer that will be a lot more detailed than “it was good.”
