When talking to your grandkids, help them express a range of emotions — happy, sad, frustrated or amused. And be open to listening to any topic.
You'll build trust and show your grandchildren that they can come to you to talk about anything.
Here are ideas of questions to ask your grandchildren:
- What’s the funniest thing that happened at school today?
- What’s your least favorite thing about school?
- What’s your favorite part of the day at school?
- What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
- What’s something that made you sad today?
- What’s something that made you happy today?
- If you could have any superpower, what would you want to have? Why? What would you do with your superpowers?
- What do you think is the grossest food?
- What do you think is the most delicious food?
- What is your favorite thing in your room right now?
- What animals do you wish could talk? What do you think they would say?
- What did Mom or Dad do today that made you frustrated?
- What did Mom or Dad do today that made you happy?
- If you could do anything or go anywhere with us this weekend, what would you want to do?
- What’s something you’re really good at? Will you show me?
