We take thousands of pictures and videos of our kids. Unfortunately, they're usually scattered in many places — on our phones, on social media, in our messaging apps, on our computers. We plan to organize them “some day” … but some day never comes. And so much is forgotten by the time we look back.
Real life is about more than cute pictures, clever captions, emojis and stickers. It’s about feelings, behaviour, emotion, experiences — the story behind the pictures — the story not captured in pictures. Things that can only be preserved in written or spoken commentary.
We never think we’ll forget anything in the moment, but we almost always do.
That’s why journals and diaries are so powerful! They tell the full story … the real story.
an incredible gift for your future 21-year-old
Our Child Journals add-on is tuned to making it very easy for Moms (and Dads and Grandparents) to give their future young adult an amazing gift — their life story.
Instead of creating disposable stories, create a treasure — bit by bit — that grows in value as it ages. A digital journal full of your favorite pictures/videos and all the memorabilia of youth, together with Mom’s, Dad’s and even Grandma and Grandpa’s commentary from 20 years ago ... and 10 years ago ... and 2 years ago.
This is from a Mom who wrote journals many years ago for her kids. To demonstrate how it would work in LifeTales, she recreated stories from 26 years ago. Try to imagine the younger version of Mom telling the story.
Her daughter, now 28, rated her journal 15 out of 10!See Rachel's Journal
This is from a photographer Mom who is an early user of LifeTales.
Her comment: “As a professional photographer, I take a lot of photos of my kids. But I knew a lot of Rome’s story was missing! With LifeTales, I can now easily add the video commentary.”See Rome's Journal
How your child will feel, looking back one day at the story of their life.
And what a resource it will be when they have children of their own!
