You might remember coming home after a long day of school and you hear that age-old question: “how was school today?” It is so easy to respond with a quick, “fine,” or “good,” without really getting into the specifics. You might also remember asking your own children this and, maybe, becoming frustrated with the one-word answers day after day.
