How to Get Your Child to Open Up – #KidQapp


This is a sponsored post on behalf of Scholastic Parent & Child. All opinions and statements are my own.

My child is full of questions, daily, hourly, he is always wondering the answers to many of life’s questions. I love to connect with my kids in conversation, but when they aren’t in the mood to talk a conversation can be hard to stir up.

This is why I love the new KidQ app from Scholastic! 

How to Get Your Child to Open Up - #KidQapp

Scholastic Parent & Child believes that one of the best ways to connect with your child is through conversation.

The KidQ app for iPhone and Android facilitates conversation via fun Q&A’s about the things that kids (and parents!) are the most curious about, like Why is the sky blue? And Why do we say “ears” of corn? Each day, users are notified of a new playful question that serves as a conversation starter along with the official answer. Families will have a blast as they compare their explanations to the facts!

After school time is the hardest time to draw up conversations with my boy, he never wants to talk about his day. I downloaded the KidQ app and scheduled it to send me a question at that same time every day, now we have something fun to talk about!

    I always ask my kids how their day was as soon as we get in the car from picking them up from school. So far so good but I know as they get older they are going to want to share less. I love the idea of this app. Reply

    Is it crazy that I was just as interested in that Q above about grey hairs as my 8 year old would be? LOL. He's always asking me off the wall questions. Reply

    This looks like a great app. I saw that children by the age of 4 ask over 100,000 questions I believe was what it was. It would be nice to have some help with answers. Reply
