I can't get my kid to tell me anything about her day pretty much ever. What did you do today, "nothing." How was camp today, "fine."

I was a pretty closed mouth kid who was on my own trip, so I can kind of relate but my inability to find out anything gets frustrating.

Ha! Sorry, that one sounds like more of a "won't" than a "can't". Probably outside my field.

Have you tried afternoon tea as a conversation lure? I've had some luck with that strategy with my younger relatives.

Meh, she is going to talk about what she wants to talk about when she wants to talk about it or not at all.
