Give your kid a choice of answers instead of asking yes/no questions if you really want to know what he thinks.
- Would you rather go to school year-round (including the summer!) and never have homework—or keep your school schedule as is?
- Would you rather spend your last day of the school year watching movies in class or playing outside with your friends?
- Would you rather pick your teacher for next year or learn who it is when school starts?
- Would you rather spend a week at summer camp or travel to a faraway place for a week with your family?
- Would you rather go to summer school to learn something new or to get ahead—or spend no time doing schoolwork until the fall?
