Here's a question from a mom who wonders how to get more than a one word answer when she asks her kids how their day was. Any suggestions?

"How do you get your children to actually talk about their day? Every time I ask "How was your day?" I get a one word answer (good or fine, etc.) I'd love to have a real conversation and find out what's going on in their little lives. Any suggestions out there?"
