Storytelling is a tool for connection. During covid, or at other times, we may not always be able to visit distant relatives or loved ones. Yet, we yearn for ways to connect. Zoom, telephone, and mail are one way, but anyone with a 3-year-old (or a 15-year-old) knows how this can be taxing for a child.
Alternatively, simple stories are often a great way to help our children stay connected in heart and mind to grandma or grandpa - and in ways that can be very engaging and playful. In this episode, Silke and Joe discuss how to introduce family stories - both real and imaginative - that can help keep your distant loved ones in your child's life.
