As parents, we naturally want to know about how our child’s day in school went. Did they enjoy the time in school? Did they make any new friends? Are they coping with the school routine?

If you have a chatty child, you will no doubt hear all about his or her new best friend, the good or bad food in school and all the things the teachers did.

With quieter children, the response to the question, “How was school today?” may well be turn out to a singular, “Fine” or “Good”.
