Every parent wants to know how a child’s day went at school – what he or she learned, experienced, and thought about the day.  Sometimes, however, the obvious question (“how was school today?”) doesn’t elicit more than a brief, unspecific answer.

An NBC news story online, offers suggestions from a parent on how to ask children about their school days in a way to get a more informative answer. The questions – and variations one can easily craft – are from Liz Evans, a parent of three and blogger.

Evans suggests questions that should help parents learn more from their children about school experiences.
