One article I found very interesting was "The Stories That Bind Us". I found it under the most emailed stories section. I thought it was a really important article and really was useful for families today. The author, Bruce Feiler, spoke about how his family was falling apart all around him. He decided to look into why. He found an emerging theme that was families need to develop a strong family narrative. He got the idea from Marshall Duke, a psychologist at Emory University. They discovered that if children know about their family and their history than they will be more confident and able to handle tough situations. They decided to look into and developed a serious of 20 questions to kids. They would be like where did your grandparents grow up, or where did your mom and dad go to high school? I thought it was funny, I even tried to answer these questions myself and I couldn't answer them all. I thought this is probably true with a lot of kids these days. Nowadays, society is moving so fast, everyone is so focused on themselves, that I do not think kids sit down and learn about their families. I think that this knowledge is valuable for one to have. Dr. Duke realized that "the “Do You Know?” scale turned out to be the best single predictor of children’s emotional health and happiness". They saw that the more kids knew, the better they were at facing challenges.
