Most children are curious about their family members and how everyone connects. And as parents, you might be excited to share your stories. The CareNectar Family Tree Activity will help start the conversation about your family history and provide you an opportunity to teach your children about your individual family members—whether your family is small or large. By learning about their family members, your children will develop a great sense of self as well, which can lead to improved confidence and self-esteem. Children will also gain a stronger sense of stability by learning about those they are connected to in the world—whether they know them or not. And importantly, they can be proud of the accomplishments of different members of their family.
