East Texas Spa, a hot tubs and swim spas Shreveport retailer publishes 3 Fast Ways to Make Family Stories Come Alive. “Keeping family stories alive throughout the generations can be a challenge. Younger members of the family may not be able to relate to times in the past easily,” said Randall Glaske, president of East Texas Spa.
“Talking about what happened, and sharing memories of youth and the life of ancestors is an important way to shape the future of younger children, but it takes a little work to really bring the past to life for them.” Here are three fast ways to make family stories come alive.
Take Lots of Pictures – In order to preserve current memories that will turn into the stories children tell their children when they are older, always take pictures of family vacations, events, holidays and other gatherings. It is pretty easy to take quick, impromptu pictures now with the advantage of built-in cameras in cell phones and other mobile devices. Load them up online and keep a scrapbook that all members of the family can see easily.
Don’t stop at just current memories though. Look through old photos of parents, grandparents and long past family members and scan them so that they can be added to online photo collections and print extra copies for other family members. Seeing the people from the past helps children get a feel for the subjects of the stories that they hear. Old photos also provide kids with an idea of what the world looked like in the past when their ancestors had to go through the things that shaped their lives today.
Help Younger Family Members Envision the Past – When telling younger family members the stories from past experiences, people need to remember to add elements to the story that help kids see the times and surroundings that would be unfamiliar to them today. A lot has changed in the past twenty to thirty years, and what was common for the older members of a family would be completely foreign to children.
A Shreveport Hot Tub is a Great Way to Spend Time Talking About Family Stories – Find a place to have family story time where children and other young members of the family will be comfortable and want to sit and listen. Younger family members that are fidgeting and looking for other things to do won’t be paying attention to the stories, and as they get older those family memories will be lost.
Adding a hot tub to the yard or patio is a great way to provide a comfortable and soothing place that family members of all ages will want to be and can relax and enjoy the tales of the past. The soothing environment of a hot tub is a great way to unwind at the end of the day and parents can talk to children about the current day’s events in a low pressure environment that promotes open sharing and conversation.
Prompt younger members of the family to add to the family stories of the past with their own favorite memories of things that have been a part of their lives. The memories they share can be personal things that occurred at school or when playing, or of vacation times, gatherings or parties that they want to be a part of the ongoing history of family stories that get carried on into the future.
