probing questions about your child’s experience (e.g., “What did you do at the
park?”; “Who did you go to the park with?”).
your child open-ended, general questions (e.g., “Where did we go today?”).
ask more specific questions to help your child recall more of the experience (e.g., “What did you

you go on the swings at the park?”).
