The way we communicate with our kids becomes their inner voice. And how well we communicate establishes our relationship with them. Also, passing on our values, teaching them to learn while listening all depend on how well we are able to manage to communicate with them as per their age.

Bedtime is one of the best time to talk to your children, discuss their day and even encourage them to think. But this must be done subtly and not like a lecture.

So here are a few bedtime questions that you should ask your kids to encourage discussions as well as establish a wonderful bond between the parents and children

  1. What was the best part of your day?
  2. What was the not so good thing that happened today?
  3. Tell me one new thing you saw or learned
  4. Did you help anyone with anything today?
  5. Is there something that you would like mommy or daddy to have done differently than what they did today?
  6. Is there something you wanted to do today but were unable to?
  7. Did you make any new friends today?
  8. Did anyone praise or compliment you today or did you compliment anyone?
  9. Tell me one new word you learned today
  10. What did you read today?

I am a stay at home mom, having worked in the software technology services space for over 10 years. In my professional life I used to enforce quality standards like CMMi & Six Sigma to make developers and testers jobs easier & process oriented.In my current stint I am using similar techniques coupled with age old wisdom from my mom and grand mom to make our living healthier and medicine free. To start any new stint it helps if you read and train and so I got myself a diploma in Naturopathy from Mumbai.

  1. Those are very pertinent questions, Sabeeka. Talking to our kids is very vital. It gives them comfort, importance and confidence.

  2. A nice list of questions and conversational gambits to be used when you put your child to sleep. I used to read to my daughter but now she has grown out of it and we generally talk about her school day.
