The Secret to Conversation

April 3, 2011 by

I didn’t learn the secret to conversation until I was well into my twenties. The best way to get a conversation going, or revive a flagging one, is to simply ask a question. I was such a shy kid and teen, and it’s amazing to think of how different my life would have been if I had learned this simple lesson earlier.

That’s why I’ve been so pleased and delighted to hear my son Tyler, now age 5, ask simple questions, with honest interest. When my husband gets home from work, Tyler asks, “How was work, Dad? Did you have a lot of fire calls?” When I get home from grocery shopping, he asks, “How was the store, Mom?” What a joy to see him learning this simple technique so early in life.
