With the first weeks of the new school year over, there are sure to be many emotions you feel as parents. Relief that we as parents have our children back at school! Perhaps some concern on how our child is settling into new classes with new teachers and new friends. If our children can talk to us about their day, we know that we can help them be happier and more successful as they learn. 


As parents one of the very important things to consider when school starts is that your child brings their ‘narrative’ home every day.  Feelings like tiredness and hunger can hugely influence a young persons’ mood when telling their story.  This changes what they tell you and how they might tell you at that time.   




Tip #1 

Feed them before or while discussing their day! 



Tip #2 

A great way to develop empathy in a family is by gently questioning our child after they have told you their version of the day about how other people were affected or might feel. What might have been going on for other students or the teacher at the time?  



Tip #3 

Perhaps 3 questions at any one time are sufficient.  Try and let them finish their story first without interrupting. 


Most importantly, at least once a week, just ‘Be’ with your child in their world.  Play with the Lego together, go for a walk or, have yum cha. No cellphone time, no school questions and no business calls!  Just quality time together. Doing so will make your child more likely to open up about their time at school and eventually you will find that that you need not have to prompt them at all.
