Do You Talk About Your Family History at Home?

Do your children know which box to check? Many tots learn more about their heritage by doing a fourth grade genealogy project than they would sitting around the dinner table. Some parents make sure their family roots are well known, while others pay little attention to educating their wee ones on their ethnicity.

In last night's "You Gotta Get a Gimmick" episode of Desperate Housewives, Gabby and Carlos are dumbfounded when their daughter Juanita discovers she is Mexican. A humorous clip, the bit also has tremendous meaning behind it and has me wondering how often people discuss their family history with their young children. Do you make your family background an important part of family discussions?
