You should ask these questions when your child comes back from kindergarten, don't make mistake



School finally started two days ago. After the child comes home from kindergarten, what would you ask the child?

“Did you listen to the teacher today?”

“What did you do in kindergarten today?”

“What did you learn today?”

"Is anyone bullying you?”


You may think there is nothing here. Doesn’t it mean not asking? Can the child tell?

According to the recent distinction between "Valid" and "Invalid", most of the problems of Chinese parents are actually "invalid questions", and the following questions asked by foreign parents are "valid questions".

If you still don't understand, then after reading these articles, let you know why these questions are "invalid".


Let's first look at the "Invalid problem":

“Did you listen to the teacher today?”

This sentence is the most frequently heard and the most "Ineffective". When you ask this question, what else can you answer besides saying "Listen"? And this way of asking children if they listen to them seems to ignore their emotions. It sounds like they don’t care much about the children’s kindergarten life, but only cares about whether the children listen or behave.

Sometimes when asking this question, parents may want to talk to their children more and start talking about whatever they want, but in fact it is difficult to open a topic with this sentence. This question is a typical "yes or no" question. , There is no way to open up creative space for children.


Look at this sentence asked by foreign parents:

“Did you have a good day?”

Ask the child’s emotions first. After the child comes home after a day in kindergarten, he must have a lot to say to his parents. Once you ask whether the child is having a good time, first care about the child’s mood and you can open the child’s conversation.


The following two questions:

“What did you do in kindergarten today?”

“What have you learned today?”

This kind of question is too general. When kindergarten children are still learning how to organize their language, it is difficult for children to answer in an orderly manner when they ask them what they do all day. They can only say casually such things as eating and going to class.

If you want to exercise your child's language skills, try to ask more specific questions.


For example, look at the schedule of the kindergarten, ask the children what they have learned in this lesson in the Pinyin class, or ask the children what activities they have done in the activity class. You can also ask the children how to do this activity and whether they are having fun. Why do you like this activity?

The more specific the questions are, the more detailed the child can say. Such questions can help the child exercise the order and organization of speaking.

last question:

"Is anyone bullying you?"

When parents are not around in kindergarten, they will inevitably worry about whether their children will be harmed. However, children in kindergarten are still 3-6 years old. At this time, children may not know how to express when they are bullied. It is difficult for parents to get the answer they want to hear when they ask if they are bullied.


Instead, start from the question of "what did you play with friends today?" Let the children talk about how they get along with their classmates, so parents can easily observe whether their children get along well with their classmates.

When parents ask questions, they must avoid "yes or no" questions and ask more "why" instead. Use open questions to develop children's creativity, rather than simple questions for children to just answer yes or no.


After reading this article, you should change from now on. Stop asking "Invalid questions", but ask some "Valid questions". Develop children's creativity and communicate more closely with children.
