Are there more languages coming? (Polish wanted)

I’m devastated that I don’t see a polish version yet- I’m dying to get this for my mother and I.

Best investment I’ve ever made.

My parents lived through a chaotic time in China’s history, but they never really talked about it until we started playing with these cards. What a wonderful thing it was to learn new things about my parents. My mother mentioned that she really appreciated that it was the first real conversation we’ve had. Hopefully, it won’t be the last. I can’t recommend these enough.


Wonderful! The transliteration was great for the hindi. The questions were both fun and sentimental. There was natural conversations happening after each person’s response. This game helps people feel seen and heard. Beautiful idea! This game will be a staple at family parties.

Special Moments Recorded

It was so nice to sit and talk with my mom about her experiences as a little girl. My sister and I recorded her reading the questions in Thai and answering them in English. It was quite special.

A fun way to share your story without kids rolling their eyes

I'm so happy to come across this game. Initially, I meant to use it so we could have Grandma talk more about her history, but I found that I was also sharing my story with my kids. It was such a gratifying experience to feel heard. I also love that it's fun and the kids don't feel like I'm making them listen to our stories. Good way to get them off their devices and open up about themselves, too!

Sometimes we are so busy growing up we forget our parents are growing old. 

We created a card game to get closer to our loved ones while we still can.

It opens up even the most reserved dads.

"I found out what my dad favorite food was growing up. That dude is the hardest layers to peel so the fact that I got something out of him that’s amazing."

It gets moms to share stories they've never told.

"My mom told me things she never told another soul. Maybe my parents are more open than most but they were pretty vulnerable even in their responses to the “light” questions."

Learn more about your grandparents that you ever have.

"I would say I'm pretty close with my parents, and speak their language fluently, but I loved how the cards delved deeper into their past. I learned a lot more about my grandparents than I ever have!"

Document life stories for future generations.

"We’ve been playing this game as a family with my father in law who has dementia. We are logging his responses so that we can share them in the future. Great way to connect! Love this game."

A Personal Mission ❤️‍🩹

For the last few years, the most important priority in my life has been healing the broken & distant relationship I had with my immigrant parents for over twelve years.

I co-created Parents Are Human to get to know my Mom and Dad before it was too late, and to help you do the same.

My Parents Hand Pack Each Order With the Utmost Love & Care 🤲

I hired my mom, Mary Lam, and dad, Francis Lam after they retired early due to covid and other health complications.

They now hand-pack and deliver all our orders to the post office each day, sending you our love and warmest wishes.
