1. What a great question! As a 1st grade teacher, it always made me feel a little sad when I heard parents ask at pick up time, “How was your day?” And the student’s reply was, “Fine.” I wonder how many parents leave it at that. Just a couple of different questions could open up a whole new part of their child’s life to them. Our days were always so jam packed with all kinds of activity from academics to social. I’m going to spread this question around to my teacher and parent friends.

    Very insightful. I am going to start exploring this question with my daughters tomorrow. Thank you for the tip.
    Here’s one I use to break the ice with my girls when I sense a “fine” or “nothing” response to my inquiries- “Who made you laugh today”?
