Talk About Homes

These conversation ideas can help your child explore the concept that every home is different.

  • Which homes do you think are most like ours? What makes you think that?
  • What did you notice that was different from our home?
  • Some homes are bigger than others. Why do you think that is?
    • And here you are in a discussion about family income.
  • Can you imagine what it would be like to live in a smaller home? A larger one?
  • Does living in a smaller or larger home make a person different? Do you still have things in common? What are they?
  • Each family has things that are special to them. There might be photographs, or items on a mantle. Special pillows on the sofa or bed. If someone new came into your home, what might they think is special to you?
  • Let’s think about when someone visits our home. What do we think they will notice? What do we want them to notice?
