Family Talk Time – Week 2


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. When you were my age, what did you want to be when you grow up?
  2. What was one thing that you did as a kid that made you happiest?
  3. What was one thing you did as a kid that made your parents proud of you?
  4. Did you take family vacations as a kid? Where did you go? How did you get there?
  5. Who was your best friend growing up? Tell us one of your favorite stories about things you did together.
  6. Who was your favorite teacher? Why were they your favorite?
  7. If you could make a new law, what would it be? Why?

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

  1. If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?
  2. If you could have any job, what job would it be and why do you think you would like it?
  3. If you could invite 3 famous people to dinner (past or present), who would they be and why?
  4. What is the one thing that should be invented to make your life easier and more enjoyable?
  5. If you could go anywhere on vacation, where would you go and what would you do?
  6. What do you like best about life?
  7. Tell us about your favorite memory.
