How well do you know your child?

  1. What is your child’s nickname in school?
  2. What embarrasses your child the most?


These are just two of the 16 questions addressed by the Canadian Child Care Federation in a study to determine how well you know your child. The study suggests that no matter how much time you spend with your children, there are many important aspects of their lives you may not know….There are no points for correct answers and there are no demerits for not knowing. Finding the answers provides a win-win scenario in establishing a thought-filled conversation, advancing your parent/child relationship.
