250 Questions for Kids (Get to Know Them Better)
Children are naturally curious, and they crave information. This prompts them to ask questions. Almost every parent has experienced this — they ask you one question, only to bombard you with a plethora of others following your answer.
Have you ever tried turning the tables and taking on the role of the investigator?
Presenting pertinent questions to kids can help expand their views and make them more open-minded.
They get to think about solutions to problems, or you can spark their curiosity.
It’s important as parents to ask our children questions from time to time. The information gathered from their answers can help us enrich their lives and make the right decisions for them.
We have gathered a list of 250 questions to give you some inspiration for starting conversations with your child.

Questions for Older Kids
Sometimes we need a good conversation starter to get older children talking. This can lighten the mood after a long day or even encourage them to share their feelings. It’s also an excellent way to get them thinking about their future.
It’s not a good idea to make questions appear interrogative with teenagers, as you may get a negative reaction.

Why Should We Ask More Questions
Asking questions has many benefits. Asking sincere questions automatically makes you an active listener. It shows the person that you’re interested and you are paying attention.
Being a good listener is an essential trait in parents. It strengthens bonds, gathers information about the child, and lets them know they matter to you. More importantly, it can play a crucial role in their development (1).
By using questions, particularly open-ended ones, we’re expanding our child’s curiosity and creativity. They get to exercise their ability to reason, as well as gain independence.
Before I had children, I thought they were the ones who asked all the questions, apart from “What do you want for dinner?”
I was wrong about that. I ask a lot of questions too.
When you ask your child questions from an early age, they learn to think about things. Open-ended questions are great because there’s no right answer. That relieves some of the pressure kids might feel to answer correctly.
Questions and conversations help children gain an understanding of the world they live in. They relate the new information to experiences they’ve had in the past and present, and apply it to their experiences in the future.
Why Ask Open-Ended Questions?
There are several benefits of asking open-ended questions, including:
- Encourages thinking: Open-ended questions encourage children to think beyond the obvious.
- Finding solutions: Children get to think of as many possibilities as they’d like before settling on an answer. This is excellent for exercising problem-solving skills.
- Helps to include more information: Some questions allow the child to add feelings and a different attitude to gather more information. This promotes empathy.
- Better understanding: Such questions can increase their knowledge of a topic and create cooperation.
- Exercises short and long-term memory: Because some questions require the child to recall past or recent experiences, they get exercise memory skills.
- Increases vocabulary and speech: When answering the questions, children must explain and describe. This expands their vocabulary, language, and speech.
- Require an active listener: By being an active listener to an open question, we’re showing our children that their explanations and answers are important.
How to Use Open-Ended Questions
Open-ended questions can be almost anything — it depends more on the words you use. They often begin with “how,” “why” or phrases indicating that you want to know more, such as “Tell me about…,” “I want to hear more about…” or “I’d like to know more about…”
Starting the conversation with a “What” question that has an exact answer is excellent. You can point to something and ask, “What is that?” or “What’s this called?”
Once they answer, try to repeat them — this lets them know their answer is right, like, “Yes, that is a bike. ” You’re giving them the confidence to continue answering.
Now it’s time to extend, but, depending on their age, use simple words and short phrases. When keeping it simple, you allow them to imitate you, thus expanding the conversation. Here’s an example: “Yes, that is a blue bike. Where do you think that bike is going? Yes, it looks like it rides through the park.”
With older children, you can extend the questions further to challenge them a bit. Always keep in mind that any answer will do — there’s no right or wrong.
Try to ask questions in a way so that your child can comprehend them. Even if they can’t find an answer, they should still be able to think about it.
Asking open-ended questions may take some practice. As parents, we are often guilty of asking closed-ended questions. It becomes the norm, especially when we’re busy and don’t have time to listen to lengthy answers.
Don’t worry, though, asking open questions is an easy habit to adopt.
Tips for Starting Open-Ended Questions
If you’re feeling a little lost as to how to start such a question, there are some phrases you can use:
- “What could happen if…”
- “I wonder why/what/if…”
- “How can we…”
- “Tell me more about it…”
- “In what way can/did/would…”
- “What would you do about…”
- “Why do you think…”
Once you’ve asked your question, give them time to think before coming up with their answer. The younger your child is, the more time should you give to them. Young children generally require additional time to decide on an explanation, and how to say it.
When asking open-ended questions, use them as conversation starters, as opposed to information gathering. You’ll soon experience some of the most interesting conversations. You may hear responses you’d never thought they’d come up with.
Why Ask Closed-Ended Questions?
Although open-ended questions are fantastic for sparking conversations, sometimes we need to ask closed-ended ones as well. Closed questions are defined as only requiring short or one-word responses, and sometimes, there’s only one right answer (2).
Closed questions are good at determining what the child knows. Caregivers and teachers often use them to find a starting point for learning.
They’re also excellent when you need a concise answer, like “Would you help me with dinner?” To this, the answer would be either “Yes” or “No. ”
The issue, however, with closed questions, particularly with children, is that they tend to end conversations unless you add more. This doesn’t allow them to open up or practice their language skills and vocabulary.
It’s entirely up to you to determine what type of question you find appropriate for the situation. You can modify them how you’d like by changing up the words or starting with a different one. Here are a few examples of closed vs. open-ended questions:
- Did you have fun at school?
- Did you paint this picture?
- Did you hit that boy?
- What’s your favorite snack?
- Can you tell me about your day at school?
- How did you paint this picture?
- Why is that boy crying? Can you tell me what happened?
- Can you tell me about your favorite snacks?
How to Engage Children in Conversations
One of the main points of asking questions is to expand your child’s language skills, and the best way is through conversations (3). Here are some tips to follow:
- Stay at eye-level: Sit down next to your child so you look them in the eyes.
- Tune-in and listen: Always remain an active listener. Even if your child isn’t using words yet, pay attention to their gestures and sounds.
- Take turns: If they don’t talk yet, give them room to communicate what they’re trying to say. Answer them with simple words and proceed to ask further.
- Question activities: Look at what they’re doing, looking at or playing with, then ask them accordingly. Get them talking by asking various open-ended questions.
- Relate to experiences and interests: Avoid talking about the latest show on Netflix. Instead, ask about their interests — perhaps they’ve experienced something recently. My little one could go on and on about the time mommy almost got a parking ticket (Oops!).
- Add questions: To model new language, ask your child questions about their activities, such as what they’re going to do next or what happened here.
- Pay attention to facial expressions: Both parties should engage in the conversation. Take a look at their facial and body expressions — if they seem uninterested, change the subject.
What Did You Learn Today?
Children ask a lot of questions from an early age, which is healthy and normal. However, sometimes parents must take the role of the asker. That gives children the chance to expand their ideas or help them open up and discuss their loves, aspirations, and anxieties.
Questions for kids can be anything. Good questions are open — those with many answers — these spark conversations, and expand vocabulary and language. Asking your little one questions can also strengthen your bond and help you get to know them better.

63 Fun Questions to Get Your Kid Talking
Children ask questions—lots of questions. But you can turn the tables! Here are 63 fun suggestions to get a conversation started.
By Erinne Magee
Original article from: Parents.com
TETRA IMAGES/GETTY IMAGES
Kids ask a lot of questions. Sometimes the questions repeat themselves. Most of the time we’ve answered them over and over. And let’s be honest, we’ve been known to ignore one or two here and there or do an internal eye-roll over the constant barrage of why’s and how’s. To be fair, studies have shown that young children ask over 300 questions each day—and so we can’t really be expected to answer all of them. (Right?)
But here’s the thing, kids should actually be encouraged to ask more questions—not fewer! (I know, you want to stop reading right now, because, why?! How?!) Turns out there’s a very good reason: When you answer your child’s questions, you help keep your child’s mind open, says author and parenting expert Michele Borba, Ed.D., Plus, she adds, “You’re modeling what a good question looks and sounds like. ”
It’s important we let kids know their imagination—and desire to know more—is a wonderful thing, and it turns out we can help achieve this not just by answering our kids’ many questions, but by making a point to ask them just as many questions in return. After all, it’s proven that kids mimic the words, patterns, routines, and behavior of their parents.
So move beyond the basic “How was your day?” and consider this list of 63 questions to help get your kids talking:
1. What do you like daydreaming about?
2. What makes you happy?
3. What have your friends been up to?
4. If you could do anything right now, what would you do?
5. What do you look forward to when you wake up?

8. If you opened a store, what would you sell?
9. What’s your Superhero name and what powers do you have?
10. You’re at the beach. What’s the first thing you do?
11. If you could grow anything in the yard, what would it be?
12. What makes you feel brave?
13. What makes you feel loved?
14. How do you show people you care?
15. What does it feel like when I hug you?
16. If your stuffed animals could talk, what would they say?
17. If you could give $100 to a charity, which would you choose?
18. How would you design a treehouse?
19. What do you enjoy giving people?
20. Did you smile or laugh extra today?
21. If you wrote a book, what would it be about?
22. If you drew everything that came to your head, what would you be drawing right now?
23. If you designed clothes, what would they look like?
24. How do you best like helping others?
25. Pretend you’re a chef, and tell me about your restaurant. What foods do you serve?
26. What do you think you’re going to dream about tonight?
27. What makes you feel thankful?
28. Where would you like to travel? How would you get there?
29. What sounds do you like?
30. If you made a cave in the woods, what would be inside it?
31. If you could ask a wild animal any question, what would you ask?
32. You’re outside for a whole day: what would you do?
33. What makes the best fort?
34. What makes you feel energized?

61. If you had to give everyone in the family new names, what would they be?
62. What would you do if you made the rules at home?
63. Tell me something about you that you think I might not know.
Don’t worry if your child isn’t initially excited about answering your questions—and don’t rush her to answer or move on to another one too quickly. Letting your child take her time shows that you’re genuinely interested in what she has to say, and not just robotically asking. And for us adults, it’s a great way to exercise our own creativity and imagination. Do you ever wonder when or why we stopped thinking outside of the box on a regular basis? By getting back there, we’re modeling the importance of curiosity.
100 fun questions you can ask your kids
Kids ask us 100 questions a day. Some studies claim that preschoolers ask about 300 questions a day!
Let's put aside the preachy parental tone and ask the kids a few questions.
Some of these questions will allow you to get to the bottom of your child's personality, which means you can get to know him even better.
Try to ask 3-4 of these questions when everyone is around the dinner table to really get the whole family involved. This is a fun pastime that you will enjoy and look forward to the next opportunity.
These questions can be asked during long car trips or long journeys. Children do not like long monotony, so questions will definitely cheer them up.
Children love being interviewed! This gives them an understanding that their parents are interested in them deeply and sincerely. Kids love to know that their parents have stupid ideas too.
So skip "how was your day" and ask the kids these fun questions instead!
1. If you wanted everyone on the planet to smile, how would you do it?
2. If you had a time machine, where would you go? What for?
3. What would you change in this world?
4. Imagine that you just won a million dollars, what would you buy first?
5. What will help you sleep at night?
