I was a young mom and didn’t really know what I was doing. If you feel you may be doing the same, then it’s not too late.

Do you need a place to start? Do you not want it to get to a point where your conversations are, “How was your day?” and you get a response as “Fine.” You can start now to create an atmosphere where there are free lines of communication with all your family members.
Homeschooling can add an additional dynamic to the hardships of conversation because you and your kids are around each other all the time. You know exactly what they have done all day and you can think there is nothing left to talk about. You may even not want to talk anymore for the day.
However, dinnertime is a great time for communication and fellowship with your loved ones while they are still in your home and you can enjoy them. These 50 conversation starters can give you a place to start.
