  • I remember coming home from elementary school and having the same conversation every day. My mom would ask how my day was, I would say "good" and she would always keep asking questions because my answer wasn't quite enough information for her.

  • I'm sure this happens to almost every mom, and some moms have a really hard time getting their kids to open up to them. They feel like they're not connecting with their kids, and that can be a scary feeling.

  • You want your kids to talk to you and open up, and it's easier said than done. But it doesn't have to be such a daunting task. Here are 50 questions you should ask your child to get to know them better:

  • 1. What was the best/worst part of your day?

  • 2. What did you do at recess?

  • 3. What was your favorite thing you learned today?

  • 4. When do you feel the most happy/sad?

  • 5. What are you really good at?

  • 6. How would you describe yourself in three words?

  • 7. Who is your favorite superhero?

  • 8. Who is your very best friend?

  • 9. What's your favorite song?

  • 10. What would you do if you were invisible for a day?

  • 11. What would your superpower be?

  • 20. What can you do to help someone tomorrow?

  • 21. What can I do to make your day better today?
