Tip 88 – Talk to your child about your childhood.
Begin with a simple question something like this. “”What would you like to know about me when I was a child?” You will probably get all kinds of questions. Answer each one in whatever way that you wish. Enjoy this very special time to share this information.
Children always enjoy hearing what it was like when their parents were children. This topic will give you a chance to talk a lot to your child at a relatively high level and with high-interest information.
