Join us for this event where we will celebrate family history. A family tree themed Storytime and craft will be presented. All ages welcome.

Why do family stories matter? They directly impact how we see ourselves, our ability to succeed, and even our level of resiliency.

Family narrative researcher Robyn Fivush found that sharing family stories contributes to kids’ emerging sense of self, both as an individual and as a member of a unified family. Adolescents who are able to recount specifics and details of family stories have higher self-esteem and greater resilience. Our family stories give us a sense of belonging and create a core identity that can be a great source of empowerment.

Learn more about how sharing family stories can help foster resilience, increase empathy, and preserve authentic truths here and here.
