Open ended questions are great for young children. They need to learn to think about an answer before just saying, ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or possibly not even responding. I have written about developing the skills needed to answer open ended questions in another blog, but I just came across this list, written by iMom. She has written a list of questions that you could ask your child when you are lying beside him/her at bedtime. These questions could help you establish a new nighttime routine with your child. Try it out and see what you think.
