Family Conversation Starters For You
Other than doing things and having fun activities outdoors all the time, you can also retreat into the comfort of your home and enjoy great conversations with your family.
As a family, you need to share your experiences and feelings through talking and sharing to connect better with one another.
Why Do I Have To Connect With My Family?
You may be wondering why it’s essential to connect with your family members. Perhaps your kids feel upset about something and have no one to talk to or share their feelings with. It’s crucial then that you are there for them and listen to them.
Your unconditional love as a parent will help your kids feel better and let them know that they are not alone. You should stop whatever you are doing and be available to listen to your family members.
How Can You Connect With Your Family Members?
If you want to understand your family members better, a great way to start is to talk to them. This may sound easy, but the truth is that most of us don’t take the time out to speak with our family members.
We may be eating dinner at the dining table, but some of us may be glued to our ipads while eating. Or we could all be in our rooms and doing our stuff rather than taking the time to chat with one another.
By making an effort to start a conversation with your family members, you show them that you are keen to connect with them and understand them better.
How Do You Start A Conversation With Your Family Members? What Do You Talk About?
This may not be that straightforward when you are faced with rebellious kids in their teenage ages. The last thing they want to do is probably talk to their parents.
When you are faced with this problem, you can start by talking about stuff that you may have in common with your kids. Perhaps both of you are avid bakers or footballers. Then take the opportunity to talk about baking or football.
Ask your kids questions and listen to them when they answer. Ask them for their fun stories about their school and hobbies. Allow them the chance to answer you, and don’t rush them through.
Keep asking questions and share stuff about yourself that your kids may not know or would love to know.
As you chat more, you will feel more connected and bond with one another in a significant way.

About Me and Let's Connect!
My name is I-Ping Yeo but I write in my alter ego Ashley Yeo cos when I first started online, I was too shy to be me. Silly! Now that my whole website and brand is built on Ashley Yeo, I am gonna stick with it (cos I am too lazy to change it and too much money has been spent on Ashley Yeo) and spread some sweet cheer!
I am a previously jaded ex-lawyer and now positively charged mompreneur who founded AshleyYeo.com. Ashley Yeo is a “fictional” character who is very different from me in personality. I am formal and boring while Ashley Yeo attempts to live a bit more dangerously but within acceptable boundaries.
I produce and publish content under my brand Ashley Yeo. I produce content mainly about homeschooling, education, digital and online learning, self-care, gratitude, ikigai (Japanese term for “reason to be”), infectious happiness strategies, passion, positivity, planning, and productivity for moms. And I also share boss girl e-commerce strategies I am testing, and resources I am using, on my own small boss girl indie business.
I conjure seriously juicy journals, notebooks, planners, coloring stuff, printables, and pretty kawaii products out of love, peaches, and cream.
I am the author and publisher of the "Big Grateful Heart: 52 Week Gratitude Journal". This is one of my best-selling gratitude journals, and it was a number 1 new release on Amazon as well as on several of Amazon's Top 100 bestseller lists.
I especially love to produce premium printables complementary to your homeschool curriculum, and for your family's positivity and self-care.
