How often do you share YOUR stories with the children in your life? Ask parents/grandparents to write out a personal life experience story instead of giving a gift that won’t be remembered or used for more than a couple of months. When I saw my daughter developing, I shared stories about what it was like for me, and she asked to hear that story over and over. It enabled her to share with me her deep feelings about it and opened the bridges for communication.
