The Boilerplate Description

Share Life Plus helps families create a tradition of documenting and Sharing Forward their family history, stories, memories, and knowledge over multiple generations. Share Life is the only platform that lets members Share Forward content over multiple generations.

Share Life uses an entry-based system to manage content. Based on their needs, members (Authors) may or may not date entries using YYYY, YYYY-MM, YYYY-MM-DD formats. To help ID the content of entries, Authors can apply up three Tags per entry and can create an unlimited number of Tags. Authors can write content and upload images, videos, and audio files.

Authors can name up to 25 Recipients and can Share entries with one or more recipients. Entries can also be shared Now or at a Scheduled Future Date. Authors can also Schedule entries to deliver to themselves, and can therefore send messages to “their future selves.”

Each Recipient is given access a custom list of entries that have been shared with them. Since all content is in the cloud, they can access their entries any time, anywhere. 

Most importantly, Recipients can become members (Authors) and can then create and share their own content and can Share Forward content they received from other Authors with their children and grandchildren. There is no limit on how many generations an entry can be Shared Forward.

All content members enter is private until it is shared with their recipients. Share Life is secure — it is hosted on Amazon Web Services servers and is built using the high performance / highly secure PHP yii2 framework.

The Power of Family History in Adolescent Identity and Well-being

Children who have the most self-confidence have a strong “intergenerational self.” They know they belong to something bigger than themselves.

The Stories That Bind Us

This intergenerational self and the strength and guidance that derive from it are associated with children’s increased resilience, better adjustment, and improved likelihood of overcoming challenges. 

The Power of Family History 

 

Families often shield children from the truth but negative stories can be even more important than positive ones for fostering emotional resilience.

Why children need to know their family history

The narrative we tell ourselves—especially the one we tell about our families—impacts our ability to be resilient.

“Research proves it. People who have a store of positve memories from childhood are generally happier and healthier, have better cognitive skills and are more tolerant of others.

The Importance of Making Positive Family Memories

The more conscious parents are of the values they wish to pass on to their children and the more they know about effective ways of transmitting these values, the more likely it is that their values will be communicated and adopted.”
