Why May Conversation Starters Can Help Your Kids Gow
Life moves at such a fast pace in our modern culture, doesn’t it? Kids have a whole slew of different challenges to face compared to when we grew up. One of those challenges is a lack of eye contact and direct conversation with others.
Screens fill our lives! I often feel like I know what someone’s smartphone case looks like better than their face. Communication has frequently become more common via keyboard than spoken words.
What does all of this mean for our kids? Fewer opportunities to practice the essential life skill of communication. And not just oral language! Kids miss out on those subtle cues like body language and facial expressions.
Even if you limit screen time in your home and don’t face this issue, chances are that life is busy. There are extracurricular activities to dash off to and appointments to attend. Dishes don’t clean themselves (although wouldn’t that be glorious?!?) and laundry appears to exponentially grow.
Or maybe you just don’t really know what to talk about with your kids? It’s not always easy to figure out appropriate topics that will engage and prompt discussion! When your mind is on the budget or what to make for dinner, you might draw a blank as far as fun topics to discuss.
No matter what your reason for wanting to help your kids grow in their communication skills, I applaud you! You’re taking a positive step in cultivating a growth mindset for kids and laying the groundwork for better relationships.
And guess what? It doesn’t have to be hard or expensive! These free printable May Conversation Starters are just the ticket to spark fun discussions.
Or use them for unique writing prompts to celebrate fun holidays and more 😉
