Week 12: Misfortune
There is a growing body of study showing that the more that children know about their family’s history, the more resilient they are. This is especially true if children hear about the hard times as well as the good times.
There is no family tree that has not has some misfortune. This week, I encourage you to explore some of it. It doesn’t have to be a heart-wrenching tragedy. It could be a set-back in business or a missed opportunity. Write about something that didn’t go the way your ancestor would have wanted or had planned.
Jack and I personally have gone through a number of setbacks in terms of Finances and Business, so i suspect that many of our Ancestors had there own share of hard times. Though i personally won’t share those on here, as that is their own private business.
