Instead of asking kids ‘how was your day’ ask this instead!

questions to ask kids after school

Anyone else tired of asking the same question “how was your day?” and getting the same standard answers? OK. Fine. Nothing exciting. 

Here are a few questions to ask next time you reunite with your kiddos after a long day at school. And remember, some kids need time to decompress so if they need a bit of alone time, first, be sure to give them it!

Questions to ask your kids after school

  • What was the best part of your day? 
  • Who were you kind to today?
  • What was the hardest part of your day?
  • What was the trickiest feeling you had today?
  • What are you most proud of?
  • What’s one moment you would do-over?
  • What’s one thing you’re grateful for?
  • Tell me one thing that you learned today.
  • When were you bored today?
  • Tell me something that made you laugh today.
  • Whom would you like to sit by in class? (Whom would you not want to sit by in class? Why?)
  • Where is the coolest place at the school?
  • Who is the funniest person in your class? Why is he/she so funny?
  • What was your favorite part of lunch?

These questions often lead to a better understanding of your kids and their experiences and gives you opportunities to help them grow and speak truth into them.
