My daughter doesn’t often share about her day without some prompting, so I use four questions to help her open up.
1. What was the best part of your day?
2. What was the worst part of your day?
3. Did anything fun, happy or exciting happen today?
4. Did anything sad, disappointing or difficult happen today?
While it’s not rocket science, these questions help us chat about the highs and lows of the day.
