Back in grade school, the ride home at the end of the day would always be the same. As soon as I was buckled in, I launched into a detailed rehashing of the school day’s events. I would spend the whole ride home talking about my day, while my older brother would sit in silence, content to just listen.

Some kids are talkers, and some kids are listeners. The key is to know what kinds of questions give the quieter child a chance to speak up. As you enter this busy season of more limited family time, it’s even more important to make every conversation count. Not sure how to start? This Back to School Talk printable provides conversation starters that helps big talkers and great listeners each share and contribute.
