How well do you know your child?

These questions are meant to be used like the Newlywed Game, where the children answer the questions on paper and parents answer what they think the children's answers will be.

This game is not meant to be competitive between parents. It's goal is to act as a catalyst for family communication. A creative alternative is for the children to see if they can answer questions about their parents.
