The Talking Jar Review and Giveaway...
About the Back to School Talking Jar:
"JUST IN TIME FOR SCHOOL! While there’s still plenty of summer left, getting ready for the new school year is already here. Pencils, pens, notebooks, lunch boxes are now available in stores for parents to prepare their children to get back to school. But what about talking? How are parents preparing their family to make this a better school year? Is better communication on the list? The Talking Jar Series has just released what will surely become an essential back-to-school item: The Back-To-School Talking Jar!
Each jar is packed with individual open-ended discussion starters designed to help parents and students talk together about the upcoming school year. The Back-To-School Jar covers a wide range of topics related to the start of school as well as on-going school related issues.
Here are just a few examples:
● What I’m really looking forward to this year is . . . ;
● This year, I think I’m really going to need help with . . .;
● The most difficult thing about last school year was___because___.
and much, much more."
What we thought: These jars are a great way to bring your family closer together. They can also help your child verbalize things they may not have been able to talk about by offering thoughtful prompts. These are quality questions that can really get a discussion going. We went through some of the questions with A before her first day of school and I think it really helped her to know more about what to expect. These jars would be great for sparking conversation within any family. What a great way to bring the family together! ABCD Diaries gives The Talking Jar an A!
