Family History is Good for Kids

Family History is Good for Kids

 

October is Family History Month!  This is the perfect time to help your child understand his family history.  Research out of Emory University has found that kids who know more about their family history can turn out to be more emotionally resilient than children who don’t. Feeling like they are part of something larger than themselves—a family—gives them a greater sense of their “intergenerational self.” And that’s a good thing.

But how do you get kids to put down the phone or tablet long enough to introduce them to their past? We’re glad you asked. We’re celebrating Family History Month with a heap of great ideas for getting the next generation into their ancestors.

  • Family History Bingo
    • Create a family bingo card with five columns and five rows and simply add family photos and play!
  • Where in the World?
    • Get a wall map and show children where their ancestors lived and migration paths.  This is a great way to learn about the world.
  • Family History Road Trip!
    • Take the family on road trips to places that are significant to your family.  Creating new family memories is part of the itinerary.
  • Family History Journalist
    • Have a budding journalist?  Have them capture family interviews by video, audio or photos.
  • Family Cookbook
    • During family gatherings collect recipes and involve your family in creating a fun family cookbook.
  • Create a Family Tree
    • It’s important for children to understand family relationships.  Help them complete their own family tree.

Be sure to share your memories of family members and tell stories about your childhood too.  Let your children know about the struggles your family had as you were growing up.  They will be better equipped to cope in better and difficult times.
