Fun Questions You Can Ask Your Child To Get Them Talking

Here are some fun questions to ask kids to know them better! Great conversation starters in order to connect with your kids over lunch or dinner.

When children ask a lot of questions, now is the time to answer them. Here are some entertaining questions for kids to ask each other in order to get to know each other better.

According to research, children under the age of six ask an average of 300 inquiries per day. Even if you’re annoyed by your child’s incessant bombardment of “why” questions, responding to them actually helps to keep their minds open; it also teaches children that imagination and curiosity are both good qualities to possess.

So, what can we do to keep youngsters interested in learning new things? Return the favor by asking them questions of your own! Moreover, children have long been established that they replicate their parents’ language, patterns, habits, and conduct.
