Here we are, week three 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 is your best childhood memory? What is your worst?
  2. What is your favorite hobby?
  3. Who is your best friend?
  4. How did you meet my other parent?
  5. What relaxes you?
  6. What makes you upset?
  7. Who is a famous person you would like to meet?

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

  1. Tell us about one thing really important to you.

  3. Tell us about something that makes you laugh.
  4. Tell us about whom you admire most and why.
  5. What was the hardest choice you ever made?

What holds you back from doing what you really want to do?
