Questions for Children After School

Back To School

Did your kids start school this week in Wayne, Oakland, or Macomb county? When they came home on their first day, I bet you asked the dreaded question: “How was your day?”. Bor-ing!

As a nanny myself, I know I’ve asked that same, mundane question to my nanny kids. They always reply the same way, and I always end up feeling lost as to how to communicate with them about their school day.

I found this cute article that shows you 30 questions to ask your child about their day at school. Hope it helps spur some interesting conversations for you and your family!
