Ways to Talk with Children after School


If you are a parent of a child who is school age you may have had the scenario of picking up your child after school and asking “so how was school today?” the answer coming back as “grunt” (lol), “Ok”, “Fine”, you get the idea, I must say however that some kids can’t wait to tell you, but mostly they will be an exception.

Are you struggling for ways to talk to your children after school?

As parents I know that we want to know how and be involved in how are kids are doing at school and so maybe it just comes down to asking better questions. You can ask the questions on the drive home, when you get home after work, at the dinner table or even at bedtime.

Ways to talk with children after school and questions to ask:

  • Who do you look forward to seeing the most each day at school?
  • What’s the best thing about being in …. (their school year) grade?
  • What’s the worst thing about being in …. grade?
  • What are you learning at the moment in class?
  • If you could pack your own lunch, what would you pack?
  • Who’s the friendliest person in your class?
  • Who is someone at school who needs a friend?
  • What does your teacher do really well?
  • What’s your favourite part of the school day?
  • What food did you like the most at lunch?
  • Who did you sit by at lunch today?
  • Who did you hang out with the most today?
