Get the Scoop About Your Kids' Day at School With This Fun Game!

Want to hear more about your kids' school day? During dinner we play “Best/Worst/Funniest,” where we all report about our day. Kids open up in part because the conversation happens during a relaxed family time. They feel comfortable because they’re not put on the spot - we’re all sharing. 

The "funniest" category guarantees we’ll all be laughing. It’s in the context of Best/Worst/Funniest that we’ve heard about conflicts with friends, success in math, hilarity in gym and anxiety about our upcoming move. It’s a ritual that allows us to check in with each other and keep communication lines open.
