How to Ask the “Right” Questions, So Your Daughter Will Actually Answer

“Hey honey, how was your day?”


The one word answer.

Oh, mama, do we know that one. Right?

You try to ask a simple intelligible question to your girl about her day and you may as well be talking to a brick wall for all the answer you get. Or a brick wall that gives one word answers… when it feels like it.

Hellloooooo, I’m like trying to bond with you, daughter of mine!

Worse, sometimes there’s that eye roll, or the silent attitude of ‘leave me alone,’ that makes you feel like you’re suuuuch an idiot for even asking.

Have you ever felt that way?

Aha! Well, then this week’s episode of We Thrive TV is for you.
