The Bigger Ones Tag

I am always looking for new ways to gain an insight into my sons' worlds (especially my son who has autism) as it can be quite hard to find a way in. I love our dinner table conversations and think I know our kids quite well but sometimes they surprise me.

My blogging buddy Pat over at White Camellias recently took part in the #LittleOnes tag (originally from Emily over at My Petit Canard.) Pat wrote a truly lovely piece;
An interview with my 4 year old.
Her son gave such beautiful and insightful answers that I wanted to give this a go too but was worried that the questions may be more for LittleOnes (hence the tag name) than for my boys who are 7 and 10.

I went on the hunt for questions and came across this article in the Telegraph 25 questions to ask your child. This was just what I was looking for...
For an intriguing and often entertaining insight into how your children see the world, take a look at these 25 questions for kids...The answers might just surprise you…
Perhaps 25 questions would be too much for my boys? I decide to condense them to 10.

1 Who's your best friend?

2 What do you want to be when you grow up?

3 If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

4 What are the three best things about being you?

5 What are the best and worst things about mum?

6 Can you name one thing that scares you?

7 What’s the nicest thing a friend has ever done for you?

8 How do you describe me to your friends?

9 If you could go anywhere in the world for a day, where would you go?

10 Which three words describe you best?
