“What happened today?” gets total silence from my four-year-old, or his favorite line, “I can’t remember.”
Here is a great hack to break the silent treatment—Five Things. Get your kids to tell you about Five Things about their days, except one of the things has to be NOT true. You then guess which was the ‘lie.’
You secretly get to learn about their day while making them laugh. Liven up your family dinner conversation.
