Family Conversation Starters Questions
The main idea of this activity is to get more out of your family other than a simple answer. Some questions to ask are the following.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned?
If you were the president and had three assistants, who would they be and why?
If you could have any superhero power what would it be and why?
Some of these questions may seem like they are a one answer question why you ask them why after they answer will open up a whole other conversation. You could even go around the room and ask each family member to answer the question and why to see how everyone answers.
