You might see conversating with your child about school as a normal day to day activity, but talking about school with your child has a lot more benefits than it seems. Read this article by The Tutoring Center, Dubai, UAE, and learn about some of the benefits your child can enjoy from this simple activity.

Why is it important?

Talking with your child about school is a great way of learning about how they experience their day-to-day. It shows them you are interested in what they experience and can help you get an idea of what challenges they might be facing academically as well as personally. Having frequent conversations about school with your child can also allow you to have a better understanding of what is expected of them in school.

Choose the Right Time

Choosing the right time to talk about school can make a big difference. Children can get overwhelmed by the question, “how was school today?” As it forced them to have to sum up their whole day, which can be challenging for them. It’s best to avoid asking a lot of questions right away when picking up your child from school and first let them relax and unwind. You can take some time during the day to have a conversation. This can be while having lunch, while playing a game together, or even before their bedtime story. Remember to give them your full attention while listening to them and be calm and receptive to whatever they have to share. This will help with building trust and a comfortable space to talk.

Questions

Te questions you ask have a big impact on the answers you get. It’s best to stay away from questions that will only get you a yes or no answer and instead ask questions that invite your child to tell you a story or at least a longer sentence. Here are some questions that may help you:
  • What was your favorite class/subject today and why?
  • What was the funniest thing that happened at school today?
  • What new thing did you learned today?
  • What was the coolest thing that a teacher said today?
  • What was the best/worst thing that happened today?
