The bedtime routine is a special opportunity to connect with your kid after a busy day, but sometimes we are so tired that we can’t think of anything meaningful to say.
But we dads can set up a deep conversation with minimal effort by using an easy template.
Here are 3 questions to ask your kid every night before they go to sleep to pause and reflect on what they experienced and how the day’s lessons can shape their tomorrow.
1. What are you most proud of from today? How did you make that happen?
Help them reflect on their wins and what decisions led to their success.
2. What did you fail at today and what did you learn?
As hard as it is, we parents have to teach our kids to be open to talking about failure so that they can use it as the valuable learning tool it is.
3. What are you most excited about tomorrow?
If our kids go to bed anticipating a great day, they can look to the future with excitement.
