Families these days have enormous time constraints. Work, school, and social obligations keep us busy. So much so that, spending time with our families is slowly becoming a luxury. One thing that our busy schedule has impacted the most is the relationship our kids share with their extended family. Kids these days know very little about their family history and their ancestors.

According to research, spending time with your extended family has a positive impact on kids. Hence, maintaining a positive relationship between kids and their extended family is necessary. When children grow up in a joint family surrounded by their grandparents, parents, and other relatives, they become responsible individuals. This unique bond nurtures the holistic growth and development of children.

Families that have an intimate relationship with extended family members can thrive in times of crisis. This fact undoubtedly contributes to their children’s development and emotional well-being. When kids live with their extended family, their aunts and uncles become their go-to person to confide in if they don’t feel comfortable talking to their parents. We all know that welcoming a new baby comes with challenges, and your extended family can be of help during this time. The skills and values kids learn while living with their extended family lay the foundation for their success and ensure that they perform socially and economically well.

And though technology has brought the world closer, our hectic lifestyle has kept us disconnected from our loved ones. Thus, kids must know about their extended family, and the first step to do this is to discover your family link by making your family tree. Here is how you can use the Kintree family tree creator to make your family tree chart:

  1. Download the Kintree app (The app is available on the Google Play Store and App Store)

  2. Sign up and create your profile.

  3. Now go to the family tree section and click on the add member button

  4. You will get an add member form.

  5. Select the relationship you have with the member. You can choose the relationship from maternal, paternal, and in-laws.

  6. Fill in the details of the family member and click on save.

  7. Now repeat the process and add all your family members.

You can start your family tree by adding your parents and grandparents and add the rest of your family members later.

Once your family tree chart is complete, you can go to the Foreroom section to connect with your family members. Don’t forget to tell your family members to activate their Kintree profile.
