As part of our ongoing “Family History in 15 Minutes” series of weekly journaling prompts, today we celebrate National Children’s Day by recording a childhood memory. Don’t worry about recording the most memorable or the most important—just record any memory that comes to mind. Any memory recorded helps preserve part of your story, part of your childhood. And you can help your children record their memories while they’re fresh in their mind, because the things that matter most to them now might not be what comes to their mind years from now.
