Family Talk Time – Week 1


Here we are, another week dealing with COVID-19. While staying home and practicing social distancing, families have a golden opportunity to talk with one another. Here are some conversation starter ideas to last a week. Make sure each person has a chance to answer.

Number these topics 1-7 and ask one of the children to pick a number. The parent/caregiver then answers the question.

  1. What beliefs give you strength?
  2. What was your first job? Did you like it?
  3. Did you have any pets growing up? If so, talk about them.
  4. What was one thing that your parents made you that you hated?
  5. What kind of food did you hate as a kid but love now?
  6. Why is being honest so important to building a stable society?
  7. What was your least favorite subject in school? What was your favorite?

Number these topics 1-7 and the parent/caregiver picks a number. The children then answer the question.

  1. If you could have anything for dinner, what would you have?
  2. What is your favorite place in the world and why?
  3. If you could star on any TV show (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) what would it be?
  4. What is the best present you have ever received?
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
  6. If you had three wishes, what would they be?
