  • How Was Your Day?
As a parent, it is very important to know if your kids had a good day or not. He or She might have forgotten to share a terrible experience he/she witnessed in school with you. So don’t fail to ask him/her “how was your day?”

Your kids will feel happy to know that you really care about them.

Another important question you should learn to ask your kids after school is, “hope you are fine?” Don’t assume that all is well, ask them to confirm if it is actually well.

We know you love your child very much, right? But don’t let him/her to over depend on another person (see this: Life of A Dependent Person: Will He/She Do Better For His/Herself).

If your Kid answers NO to the above questions then it is time to meet the school authority for a change of seat. Change their seat as fast as possible.
