Location: In The Car

Activity: Car Ride Conversation

Age: 5 years old and up.

 

In our opinion, it’s extremely important for all parents to have in-depth conversations with their children about topics your family feel are important. Whether it’s politics, sports, entertainment, religion or sex your children should know your stance on what’s going on in the world.

During this holiday break, many families around the country will be traveling to spend the holidays with loved ones. If you and your family will be traveling by car this can be used as an opportunity to have a great discussion.

We recommend selecting a topic beforehand and giving your child a couple days to do some research. During the car ride, ask questions about what they researched. Do your best to create a discussion on the topic while hopefully engaging the other members of the car to participate. Allow the children in the car to do most of the talking, doing this will allow you to gauge how well they’re able to articulate themselves.
