4 questions to get your kids to talk
I read somewhere a few months ago, that if we would
like to know what our children are about,
we should regularly ask these questions:
1) What are you most excited about in life right now?
2) What are you most worried about?
So I thought I would start with the first question last week
while Elora was here for a few days.
She's 12…but she has always had lots to say since she was 2 ….
so I was anxious to try my question out on her.
Instead of asking her what she was excited about, I upped it one
and asked, "What are you most passionate about lately?"
She asked back, "Like how do you mean?"
"Well," I said, "what do you think about the most?
"What do you get most excited about?"
"What are you obsessed with?"
"What do you wish you could do every day?"
"I finally paused, waiting for her answer."
She looked up from her Youtube tutorial
and gave me her quick one word answer:
Why didn't I see that answer coming?
There were actually two more questions on the list
if you want to try them with your kids:
3. "Who have you noticed that may need your help?"
4. "Is there anything that has happened that has made you feel uncomfortable lately?"
Look what she did for Violet!
Not bad for just a 2 week passion.
Elora has always been a passionate child….like in this video when
she was 7…she was SO worried about the people in Haiti
her very last line gets me every time! :)
