UPDATE: How often do you ask your kids what they did that day?

I do it every single day. They are 6 and 8.

Thank you for the replies. My boys went to see their dad for a month. (They haven't seen him for over 18 months.) And, I'm being accused of being 'petty' and 'nosy' for asking.

Isn't it my job as a good parent to know what they're up to? Would you be able to cut off all communication with your kids for a month?

Never. I am with them all day.

But I do ask them, what was your favorite part of today?

Almost never. I know what they've both done all day except on rare days.

How old are they? Do they go to school? If they weren't with you, would you ask? Would you want to know?

They are 9 months and 5 years. My older son starts school this fall (eek! lol). I'd definitely ask, and do on the days that they spend apart from me- though the baby never gives me an answer. ;)

I love hearing my 5 year old describe things. Little kids are adorable when they go into detail about stuff. lol
