Connecting with Your Parents During the Holiday
If you're intrigued by the idea but not sure where to start, this list of 20 questions, originally published on www.AgingCare.com, offers help.
Here are the first five questions on the list:
- In what ways do you think I'm like you? And not like you?
- Who is the person who influenced your life the most?
- Do you have a lost love?
- Which new technology have you found most helpful in your life? Which do you find to be the most annoying?
- Is there anything you have always wanted to tell me but never have?
For even more fun, and in the spirit of capturing family history for the future, consider recording your loved one's responses. If he or she will allow you to do so, the recording may end up being one of your most treasured keepsakes as well as a way for your own children to learn more about their ancestors.
