Everytime I pick up my daughter Naomi from school, I ask, "HOW WAS SCHOOL TODAY?" and I usually get a basic answer like: "It was good." That's it.
I've been trying to think of better questions to ask her that might get her to share more about her day. I'm trying to get more specific in how I ask her questions.
I LOVE this article from Huffington Post about 25 Ways to ask your child "How was school?" that might actually get them to answer!

As I was driving into work this morning, I was listening to the words in the songs we play on SOS Radio. I was hearing songs about faith, trust, love, grace and changed lives. There was just this theme of "encouragement" in the air.
God is in the life change business. Jesus said, "If you really knew me, you would know my father as well….. from now on you DO know him and have seen him. Anyone who has seen me has seen the father. I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these."
If you don’t look forward to anything in your life, you’re probably letting the past have too much control.
Changing our diet often shows quicker results that just working out extra times. A big part of weight loss & fatloss is attributed to the way we eat. Excercise is very important, but what we eat really sets a standard.
Seth Ahlborn is Headmaster at Henderson International School. He shares some ideas on how we can help our kids really thrive in this new school year. He challenges us as parents to step up and play a stronger role in our child's education.
Joey Perez from Berean Baptist Church called me out in the #BibleChallenge. So here's my response.
If all the back to school costs and higher grocery prices have been getting the best of you lately, maybe this new song from Chris August will make you smile :)
Just Chris August and his friends being silly :)
We go outside and we think,
"I don't really need sunscreen."
"I want to tan!"
"I'm young, it's OK!"
"I don't burn easily. The sun won't really damage anything."
This video is fascinating about how our skin looks under UV light. Then it shows how our skin looks with sunscreen on part of our face. Whoa!
This might be my favorite conversation we've ever had on SOS Radio. Chuck Norris talks about his faith, he talks about overcoming pride, Washington DC and his favorite Chuck Norris facts. [email protected]

Believe it or not, out of the first 18 years of our child’s life, almost 6 and a half years of that time will be spend in school! That’s over 1/3 of their journey will be outside of our personal care! That challenges me as a parent to brainstorm new ways to supplement my child’s education and do a better job living out my values. It challenges me to make time each day to read with my kids and carve out time for their homework this year.
