An example of a "question of the day" is: "If you could have any super power, such as invisibility or extreme strength, what super power would you choose?" Such questions serve as a discussion prompt to promote higher-level thinking skills, sharing and thoughtful conversation within a family, group or classroom.
There are many websites that offer suggestions for question topics. Family Education provides a list of 100 potential questions that can be used with children and discusses the purpose behind using such questions. Positive Parenting Connection also offers a list of suggestions, along with tips for keeping the conversation going.
