Have you ever asked your kid the question WHY and struggled to get an answer? This happened to me a lot and after researching what experts say I realized there is a better way to ask this question. The issues is that WHY is abstract (ex. why you feel angry?) this is a question that even an adult with a psychology degree may not be able to have a straightforward answer. A better, more specific question to ask is "what made you feel angry", and then you will quicker get a specific answer like maybe "because you tied my laces and I wanted to do it myself..."
