21 Questions to ask your parents while they are still here

Jairek Robbins

Despite our parents only being in their 50’s, they have been faced with some major health scares.

After reaching out and asking on social media how they’d spend those last days or years (hopefully longer) with loved ones, one idea that came through was making a video with them asking them about their life, about love, about challenges, their victories and lastly how they wanted to be remembered.

So here are some questions we’ve pulled together that made quite a fun, meaningful and memorable interview with our parents. We hope you enjoy them and take some time to interview your parents to capture their spirit while we still have them with us.

Life is precious, let’s make the most of it! 

Here are the questions to ask your parents

  1. What do you remember most about your mom and dad?
