When eating together, invite your child to think about their day by asking, “What was the best part of your day” Have each person at the table answer. Then ask, “What was the worst part of your day” Go around the table again. Share your day with them and encourage them to ask others.
See what your child is learning
When your child hears about your day, they begin to learn how to understand another person’s point of view. This is an important skill for life. They’re also practicing the back-and-forth of conversation and thinking about their own day. This builds family connections and makes mealtime fun.
