To get your family close, you have to get it talking.
One of the signs of a healthy family is open and meaningful conversation. But it's not always easy to get your kids talking. 101 Conversation Starters for Families is an excellent place to begin, providing just the right blend of fun and thought-provoking questions, such as:
- If you could ask God a question, what would you ask?
- Complete this sentence: "I feel especially close to you when . . ."
- About trading places:
- Children: I think the best part about being a grown-up would be . . .
- Parents: I think the best part about being a kid would be . . .
Authors Gary Chapman and Ramon Presson have created this treasure trove in a handy tabletop format. Whether you do one question a week or five days a week, your family will experience a new level of closeness. 101 Conversation Starters for Families is the perfect companion to bestselling books, The 5 Love Languages of Children and The 5 Love Languages of Teenagers.

gcwfarmgirlOhioAge: 18-24Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5DisappointingAugust 12, 2014gcwfarmgirlOhioAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1If you don't own any other conversation starter books, and your children are young-like under 10 (maybe even 7 or 8), this is a great start.
However, if your children are older or you own any other type of conversation starter book this book will be very repetitive.
Other than having some christian related questions this book doesn't stand out.
I'm disappointed with the majority of the questions. They aren't really conversation starters (they're not thought provoking); i.e. What's your favorite color/toy, which country would you like to go on a vacation to, more embarrassing moment etc...been there, read that and already know the answer to...
The set up of the book, if also a let down, one question per page. You could of easily fit more questions per page-and then fit more questions in the book....I think it would of been nice to have the book divided between ages (so the difficulty of answer matches the age), because let's be honest-no 12 year old finds it fun to answer 'what's your favorite color'.
It had a lot of promise, but failed to deliver...Save yourself the money, google & just write up your own.

It has sparked wonderful conversations that allow us to reflect on fun memories and dreams for the future; there are also questions that tap into your creativity and cause you to think outside of the box. Many questions apply biblical principals and allow you to encourage one another in specific ways. We used it when my family was visiting and when a friend came over for dinner. Everyone appreciated the variety it brought to our conversations.
