Family Stories from Your Closet

Discover the rich and meaningful ways objects in your closet can help you share family stories, family history, and even world events with your grandchildren and family members. Presented in the most personal and loving way by Dr. Ruth Nemzoff, author of Don’t Bite Your Tongue: How to Foster Rewarding Relationships with Your Adult Children, and Don’t Roll Your Eyes: Making In-Laws Into Family, and two of her granddaughters.

You too can build a family story from personal objects in your home. Consider asking your own grandchild to make a video of you telling the story of the objects!

Watch this video to learn how your own closet can provide story prompts.
