I love question cards, so I thought I would like these. I love them. They are not like any other card games I've tried. They are much more pensive, they go deeper, and they improved my relationship beyond a moment of fun like other cards might have. If you TRULY want to connect with your kids on a deeper level, buy these cards.
I don't usually buy things like this. But I decided to try it. I often want more from my conversations with my son but I don't know what to say to get us there. These cards I have been the answer I didn't know I needed. I now keep them by the phone. I call him once a week and ask the questions from one card each time. I have since seen a massive improvement in our communication. I know things about him that I didn't know about before and I believe that he thinks of me as being a closer part of his life now. I did not think a box of cards could have this big of an effect on a father-son relationship.
Jenny, I received the Prompts for Parents card as a gift.
I did not perceive the need at first but when we started to read the questions we enjoyed challenging and teasing each other. We found the activity intriguing. You will be surprised by how much these cards make you think and laugh and, I promise, you will not miss any TV shows.
I played these cards with my mother and had a ton of fun! I am her adult daughter. These cards gave us so much to discuss. There was laughter and new stories galore, as well as some deep moments that we both greatly appreciated. Would definitely recommend these cards to anyone looking for a fun way to learn more about their children or their parents.
Empathy and active listening is what I observed and felt while using these cards. I used the questions without having the card out. I didn’t want the children to feel like they had to be ‘on’ so I studied the prompts, picked out ones that drove my curiosity and used those. Sad, friendship, peers, those cards worked especially well.
