Use this list of back-to-school conversation starters so you and your child can reflect on the summer and get excited about the upcoming school year.

To use these conversation starters:

  • Find a relaxed time when you can give your full attention, such as after dinner, or at some other quiet time.
  • Skip questions your kids don’t want to answer or don’t understand.
  • Make sure to not force a discussion; stop asking questions if they don’t want to talk.
  • If you have several children, you may want to find one-on-one time with each of them rather than trying to ask in a group.
