Don't Let Busy Get in the Way of Connecting with Your Kids
August can be such a busy month! It's back to homeschool time for many families. And others are still enjoying a lovely homeschool break that's filled with fun activities and events.
So, with all that busy, how do you make time for fun chats with your kids? Or even just sitting down to talk about whatever?
It's hard. I truly get it. Schedules get packed, to-do lists are a mile-long, and the day is over before you blink.
You know it's important to build connections with your kids. And you want to enjoy what matters most-cultivating relationships and making special memories.
There's just all. the. things.
August conversation starters are here to give you ideas and inspiration for starting those awesome chats with your kids.
Why You & Your Kids Will Love August Conversation Starters
When your day is full, it's hard to shift gears. Going full steam ahead to do #allthethings has you rushing about in a kind of frenzy. As a homeschool mom, you wear many hats (chauffeur, teachers, nurse, maid, cook, etc.). And it's not always easy to change your hat to a concerned and loving mom.
Yeah, that's hard to admit. But, there's a type of power that comes with that acknowledgment. Because now you CAN do something about it!
Conversation starters give you the opportunity to engage in fun talks with your kids. All you have to do is pull out the printable cards and get talking about questions like, "If you were a spy, what would be your code name?" and "What is the one thing you'd really like to do before summer ends?".
No pressure on you to think of what to say or ask. And your kids get the chance to get their creative juices flowing and develop self-expression skills.
These conversation starters also provide a spark to more in-depth discussions, too. The questions are based on seasonal, holiday, and monthly themes. But, don't be surprised when your conversation about pretending to be a starfish in a tank and describing what you see turns into a discussion on ocean life or other fun rabbit hole adventures 😉
