PARENTS and PARENTING
The ideas below are just a few of the possible things we can create for families with young children and/or adult children.
> Knowing Your Heroes. Exploring the stories of recent or distant ancestors in the form of keepsake books: Who were these people, what did they accomplish and what inspiration can you take from their history?
> Children’s Books with a Twist. Bedtime storybooks filled with inspiring fictionalized stories based on family stories and facts from family history, including pages explaining the real details behind the stories. These thoroughly personalized books go way beyond the books you’ll find online that plug a child’s name a few details into a standardized story. Great for parents and grandparents to teach, inspire, entertain and make sure family stories are not lost.
> A Chronicle of Strong Women. Who are the women in your history who can inspire your daughters and granddaughters? We’d love to tell their story in a keepsake book.
> 10 Moments When. We can tease out 10 stories/moments from family history that showed strength (or creativity or courage or ingenuity, etc.) or examples from family history that highlight a principle that parents want to teach their children and/or grandchildren. Talking with children about concepts like hard work and work ethic in the abstract is very different (and likely far less powerful) than telling them actual stories about their own relatives expressing these behaviors.
> Letter to Your Growing (or Adult) Child. A keepsake of your thoughts and advice that’s created now but designed to be given to your child or grandchild at a milestone age in their future, like 18 or 21 or even 35 or 50. What if you could share your knowledge with your new grandchild, but speak to them as a teenager or young adult? What if you could take all your thoughts on what it’s like to navigate your 40s and 50s, and share that with your child when he or she reaches that challenging milestone era? We can help you do just that.
