You know how everyone has one or two pieces of advice that they share with everyone?
Often, it’s something that you went through, learned a lesson, and now you share that lesson learned with others so they won’t make the same mistake.
One of the things I often tell people is if you get a chance, sit down with your parents, videotape a conversation with them – ask them lots of questions – and then make several copies of that conversation.
Years later, you’ll be glad you did.
I did this with my Mom and Dad – and also with my sister who died about 6 years ago. It’s painful to watch the video now but it’s just something that I’m so glad I have.
Stories about their childhood, stories about their work history, stories about their siblings and yours.
…the amount of things they can discuss and share are endless…and will often be treasured for years later by grandkids, great grandkids…and so on.
I came across this list of things to ask your parents if you do this…and thought it was worth sharing. Check this out:

Trust me, you won’t regret it!
