May Link Up: Mothers, Our Memory Keepers
Mothers are at the heart of family. Researcher Marshall Duke found that family stories are primarily transferred by mothers and grandmothers and that these stories give children personal strength and moral guidance. Mothers are often the memory keepers of the family.
We honor our mothers and their influence in society each Mother’s Day (May 14, 2017 in the United States). Let’s celebrate them by remembering the advice, memories, and stories they passed on to us, and the positive effect this has.
What to share:
-tips for preserving mom’s stories
-advice passed on by mom or grandma
-an inspirational story that has been passed down by your mother/grandmother
-how your mother’s stories helped you when young
-how moms can share stories with kids in a meaningful way
-how to help kids research their grandmothers and great grandmothers
-showing kids how to honor the women in our family tree
-activity or printable for mother’s day
