 Hey readers, 

It can be hard to get your child to open up to you therefore a prompt can sometimes really help give them the encouragement to talk to you. It doesn't have to be anything serious the idea is to help with your child communicate and engage in conversation with you.

Cheers for reading X 


  1. Great tips for talking to kids! This is a timely post for me to read. We're hosting our 3 grandsons for several weeks. They all live out-of-town from us, and we love spending time with them in the summers.

  2. Great tips! When my youngest isn't chatty when she comes in from school I always ask her to tell me her 3 favourite things that she did that day and it gets her chatting. Usually there's a lot of moaning about various things but it starts the conversation x

  3. Some good tips and not just to use with kids either thanks for linking with #pocolo Chickenruby

  4. Fab suggestions to help kids engage. Not everyone finds it easy to start a conversation. Lovely post. xx

  5. It's a nightmare getting kids to talk isn't it. We have a selection of questions we ask our kids when we are in the car as that's when they are most responsive. Last time, though, they were way to busy talking to each other, honestly, they live in the same house yet know so little about what each other is doing. That's teens for you!

  6. I love these! Of course, not all of them may reveal much about the child, depending on who's doing the conversation starting. For example, if I were a parent, I'd probably know when my kids learned to tie their shoes. However, some others are great for parents to get to know their kids in a fun way.

  7. I also love these - and tbh - some will be good for adults too! thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

  8. This is a great list. It's so easy to just let them be and not make the effort to start these conversations but it really is critical to keep that communication going #dreamteam

  9. It can be quite tricky to get kids to talk about things. You've included lots of different topics and open questions to encourage them to share their thoughts and feeings. Thanks for linking up with #DreamTeam
