Questions for your kids

WITHOUT ANY prompting, ask your child these questions and write down or video EXACTLY what they say. It is a great way to find out what they really think. If you have more than one child, be sure the other is not around to hear the answers. The differences with each child is priceless!

Some questions might be skipped. For example #21 and #23 depending on your birth and life situation.

You can substitute Mom with Grandpa, Dad, Aunt Sarah, etc. and use the video as a birthday gift, holiday gift or a great pick me up on any day of the week. Have fun!!
