21 Questions To Ask Your Parents While They Are Still Here

My dad passed away late last year from a stroke and I was very grateful I made a strong effort to continue to invest in our relationship over the years.

I asked him questions, learned more about his life story, and made the effort to spend quality time with him when I normally would have been too busy working on my own life to have time for my parents.

Also looking back in hindsight there were things I could have done better and questions I wish I asked him.

My friend good friend, business partner, and coach Jairek Robbins came up with a list of ’21 important questions to ask your parents while they are still here’ and I thought there were some great ones on it to share with you.

Here they are:

  1. What do you remember most about your mom and dad?
  2. If grandma and grandpa had a message for you and their grandchildren, what do you think it would be?
