Twenty Questions: Interviewing Your Child
Video camera (optional)
This is a neat exercise to do with or without a video camera, although a recording of this would make a great gift when your child grows up. Explain to your child that you would like to interview him or her (you can talk about what this means and why people give interviews). Ask questions like: 'What do you want to be when you grow up?' 'Do you want to do one thing or lots of different things?' 'Where will you want to live?' 'What will your house be like?' 'Your friends/ neighbors?' 'Will you have hobbies?' 'What do you want the world to be like?' Invite your child to interview you, too. They can ask questions about when you were little.
