25 questions to know how the children have done in school

It is very positive that we talk with our children about their day to day so that they can tell us about their concerns and we are closer to their daily emotions. The only downside is that sometimes to the question of: how was school today? The answer is usually a terse “good” and that is where any possibility of conversation ends. Normally we insist and they close in band. This is easy to understand if we think that they spend a minimum of 7 hours in school with many subjects, activities, breaks, teachers and classmates. Imagine how many anecdotes of all kinds can accumulate each day.
