Those 50 questions

What do you generally ask your child when he/she returns from school? "How was your day?" or "What did you learn today?" or "Did you eat everything in the lunchbox?" are perhaps the most common ones we usually end up asking.

Do our questions tell us what we want to know or should know? Perhaps no.

Here is a list of 50 questions collectively shared by parents, psychologists, paediatricians and social workers. (This was done in an event at ConfidentLearning)

Hope this helps and keeps our children safe
