25 better ways to ask your child “How was school??”
Kids are funny, aren’t they? As soon as you ask them something important, they shut down faster than your coworker can slam their laptop closed when you walk into their cubicle.
But asking your kids about their day IS important.
Problem is, asking “How was school today”, is a little too broad and, let’s face it, boring.
So maybe try it another way.
Here are some great ways to spark some conversation with your child. It’s amazing what little tidbits you can gather just by approaching it differently…

If I called your teacher tonight what would she tell me about you?
How did you help somebody today? How did somebody help you today?
When were you the happiest today?
