Recently in this new generation, we all focused on social media having lots of friends on social media and few trusted friends in the real world. when i was younger i do ask lots of question that sometime end with a long relating past experience/story from my parents and grandparents. Sometimes i do ask myself, if this was how they lived why is our different. What stories will i tell my offsprings about my life and life in general knowing i have little to talk about.
Though i came up with some answers like interacting with people face to face and always having this quote in mind

Wow, it's an interesting question. To start, I will tell my grandchildren about my travels (I prefer traveling, not tourism). There were many situations to learn from. Another type of stories will be about events that drove the transformation of my character (though I think my grandchildren will be more clever than me at the same age). Hope my diaries will help me remember all this stuff  Smiley

I will tell them a story about that raid me and my friends did at WOW, it was an all nighter. So many people died on that night...  Tongue

I will tell them a story of how I got interested in cryptocurrencies in their early stage. At the time when most people were either ignoring it or laughing at it. And tel  them how we used to have paper money. They'll be like what? You paid with pieces of paper? That had to be hard, doing all that counting, walking around with a pocket full of paper.

If I do have children I would probably tell them stories from my childhood, what kind of problems I had and how I solved them. It would be also interesting for them to hear about what changed in the world since my childhood. As for me, I used to like it when my parents told me funny stories about when they were my age. It is interesting that despite how long ago it was we still had a lot in common Smiley

All of us have different stories to share to mm our children and grand children. First,  we can tell the our childhood. Our childhood is more interesting than todays generation. We are more involve to physical games and activities,  unlike todays that children are all into gadgets. We can tell them our experiences in camp,  how we overcome the flood and storms during camp in the wilderness. How we are able to rescue all the campers and how God work that time. I can also tell them all that I have been through when I was young and the lessons I learn from that experiences.   We should always share the stories with lessons so they can learn from it.

Maybe I will tell about my childhood to my children,
Because my childhood was very different from the present time,
I will share experiences and lessons that are not taught in schools in general,
So they are better prepared to face life and better understand what a struggle is

I will tell them my stories and experiences as a kid,  teenager,  college days and my love story with their father. I want them to visualize everyrhing and compare it to their generation today. They will be amaze for the differences. I also want them to avoid and learn from our mistakes and imitate the good ones.

Well even if most experiences are now shared through social media, there are probably a lot of stories behind every post and picture. It's easier to share past experiences now since you have records to look back on. Photos of my travels and the stories behind them would be an interesting share for my children

Of course each tune on their birthday, i will make sure to tell how we struggled to fight for her to stay alive on my womb. For me this is the most awesome story that I can tell my child. Simply because, it will make her feel loved, and also I want her to know how God worked in the midst of my pregnancy.
On the other hand, regular days would mean more exciting stories like bible stories. I want her to be familiarized with beautiful stories of the bible.

I would like my child/children to know that life isn't easy. For starters, I would like them to know my story of growing up and growing onto the world where happiness and sorrow comes hand in hand to mold themselves. I want them to be ready for the future encounters they'll have and let them enjoy every moment. Also stories that are passed on from generation to generation.

I will tell my grandchildren how my husband and I built the house. How we set goals and achieved them. How we got to know grandpa and how we got married. How we traveled and how to overcome the difficulties in the upbringing of our children.

I would probably tell them about how the world moved from being very analogue to digital, the experience of the two worlds. How my generation had to transit from analogue ways of doing things to digital and to deduce the most important lesson from it to them that ''the only constant thing in life is change and that change comes bearing its gifts and challenges''.

When i will be old and having grandchildren, i will tell my grandchildren that when i was a child telephones have chords, televisions were squares, coca cola costs only cents, and house moms used to listen to radio dramas. There were radio phonos and cassette players and a lot more.

What would I tell my children when I get old? Hmmmmm...good question

I would tell them my life story...my experiences....my successes as well as my failures.

I would tell them to be aware...every action has a reaction or in other words, a consequence.

I would tell them life is not all peaches....it has its ups and downs.

When you fall you get back up, try not to compare yourself to others.

So yes, I do pray I reach a ripe old age and be able to look back and say I can tell a good story to my children

As one person said, live a good life so when you get old you can relive it all over again.

When I was a kid, my grandmother used to tell me a lot of stories from the Hindu mythology. But my parents never bothered much about it. The stories I heard during my childhood had a huge impact in my adulthood, and they continue to influence me in making various important decisions.

I would tell stories of my own to my future children. I will tell them all the things that happened to their father. I will tell my childhood where traditional games is a big part of it. I will also tell my teenage life, on how boring and exciting is it at the same time. Also, the travels that I've done before we have them will also be told as it is the most exciting part of my life. Lastly, I would tell them all the values that I learned from my experiences.

When I was eight I was called a 'Communist piece of shit' by a nun in my religion class.  She slapped me, pulled me by my hair and kicked me out of the class. 

I only asked why Jesus did not have a wife or girlfriend by the time he was 33.

Hahaha... leave it. I had even worse experience from these nuns during my school years. Some of them used to target me because I was a non-Christian. They used to say that I am worshiping the devil and I'll go to hell after my death. They beat me when I told them that the religion I follow is the native religion of my land.

It is very nice question. I think I would not be a old ever because I want to enjoy each moment while living in this beautiful world. I will tell children that how I enjoyed my time in this world. There were many legends in the world. I will tell them about their life and how they became legend. The beauty of the nature and excellence of the human inventions will be in my stories. Above all, human and their discoveries will be the center of my stories.

I prefer telling stories on how beautiful the world is. I will tell them that l did live my life to the fullest without any regrets. That I chose a path that I will never think of going back again. How my failures became the mold for who I am today. That I manage to live my life while earning with the use of this. I have a lot to share with them.
