Engaging our kids in conversation can be challenging, especially as they get older and decide we’re not as fabulously interesting as they used to believe. But, as Dale Carnegie points out, showing interest in people’s lives by asking targeted, even ostensibly silly, questions is a sure-fire way to build rapport and to increase your influence in that person’s life.

What are some examples of great questions to ask our school-age kids so that we engage in meaningful conversation? In the video & via the links below, you’ll be well equipped for one of the greatest ongoing conversations of your entire life.
