50+ Questions to Get Your Kids Talking

Our kids are often filled with curiosity. They ask a million questions. Sometimes it feels like they never stop asking them.

My children were full of questions. It felt like I was answering over 300 questions they had. Some of them constantly were barraging me with “why” when I would tell them something.

Answering their questions sometimes felt annoying, but I knew my children were only curious about everything. They wanted to know how this worked and why they did. Answering my kid’s question kept their minds open, encouraged their imagination, and kept them learning.

Our kids have a lot of questions for us, we also have a lot of questions for them. When my kids would come home from school, I was always asking them generic questions. “How was your day?” “What did you do?” Did you learn anything?” Their answers were mostly always the same.

It can be hard to connect to our kids and learn what is happening in their life, especially after a long day after school when they are tired after a long day or hidden behind a screen on car rides. But asking the right questions can help start a conversation between you and your children.
