Life Questions and Conversation Starters
100 Questions so you can Get to Know Your Family
Why is it that kids so often say, “Parents never listen,” and Parents say, “Those kids never listen”? Because we are distracted by work, life, tv, ipods, cell phones, video games and rarely sit down and have conversations about each other and the world.
These questions are just a fun way of connecting with each other both talking and listening. The only thing I suggest is that nobody can laugh at anybodies answers. Laugh with people but not at them. Try to avoid judging at all - because if you shut them down - they may not open up again. As well they will give you some great insights into what to get for Christmas presents.
This is a family safe list so it is a little shorter than the other questions lists on the site but feel free to improvise, make sure you get the who, what, when, why and where.
