After school, almost all youngsters frequently refuse to communicate their feelings and issues to their parents. But we can assist them in opening up by asking some questions.
We'll show you how to know your children's academics performance without going to their schools.
1. Pay attention to how they're feeling.
Children's feelings usually say a lot about them. Before you start asking them questions, try to know if they are in a good mood. Don't force it; hug them and simply be nice to them. If they're in a good mood, crack a joke, tell them about yourself, and let them relieve stress after a long day before you start asking questions.
2. Begin a conversation with an observation.
If your child is reluctant to discuss what happened at school, make an observation and provide a good topic for discussion. He or she may have a problem with class, literature, or teachers. Simply choose a topic that they are interested in.
3. Share some personal information with them.
When talking about ourselves, we give kids the option of participating in the dialogue or just listening. Tell them about a fun experience you had at work or when you were a kid. There's a probability that the kid will react positively, and you'll find out how their school day went.
4. Avoid asking broad questions that can be answered in a single word.
Ask open-ended inquiries that are difficult to answer with a single word.
5. Don't make eye contact when you ask a question.
According to a parenting expert, Varda Meyers Epstein, making eye contact with children while discussing is like forcing them to make a difficult decision or to answer a difficult question. No eye contact will assist the youngster in relaxing and not feeling as if they are being “interrogated.”
The following is the list of precise questions to ask your youngster.
A. Which lesson was your favorite and why?
B. What did the teacher teach you that was the most interesting?
C. What drew your attention today?
D. Which of the lessons gave you the most confidence?
E. Which subject would you choose to replace if you had a choice?
F. What was it that made you laugh?
G. Who would you choose if you were stranded on a desolate island with a classmate, and why?
H. Is there anything your teacher said today that made you think about something?
I. When I was in school, certain students were obnoxious and misbehaved. Is there something similar going on at your school?
J. Was there something you wanted to know but couldn't because you didn't have time to question the teacher?
K. Which part of school is your favorite?
