We started with one question, “What is the most impactful book you ever read?” and it led to a 1+ hour conversation.

It’s the first time we had such a meaningful mom-daughter bonding experience. She finally didn’t feel the pressure to “parent” me.

Over the moon that this exists. We’re finally sharing stories and questions we’ve carried for years, but just didn’t know how to ask.

Use Parents Are Human To Learn Chinese
“I always tell my students on day one of class that when you speak to someone in their mother-tongue which is not yours, you are immediately saying I love you. All the more so if there are language/cultural/generational barriers within a family.”
– Spencer Baron (Chinese Teacher)
About The Game
How to Play
🍵 Find a comfortable space together to get cozy and curious.
👀 It is through our curiosity and wonder where we often discover that we are all more alike than we are different.
💬 You can play anywhere — over FaceTime, on the phone, or in-person.
📴 Put away distractions and focus on being present.
👂 Listen with your whole self and refrain from judgement.
❤️ Be open, honest, patient, and kind.
There are no “rules” although we have a few suggestions. The next time you talk to your family, you might:
1️⃣ Pick a Question Card. Every person answers the same card. Repeat.
2️⃣ Shuffle in Action Cards in between Question Cards.
3️⃣ Pick any card, then have the other person(s) respond as if they were you.
4️⃣ Lay all the cards across the table. Pick them up naturally and answer freely.
5️⃣ Pick a card that piques your curiosity. Talk about it over your next meal or send a picture over text.
🏆 Spending quality time together and getting to know your parents better = winning.
✨ We hope this game is a tool for you to spark a connecting experience with your Mom or Dad.
🤲 Want to skip a card? Want to spend the entire time talking about one card? Whatever it is… make it your own!
💪 Sometimes, all it takes is one step forward. Pick out the Question or Action card you feel is easiest and challenge yourself to reach out to your parents about it within the next week.
