I am a self-proclaimed “storytelling advocate,” and I believe every parent should tell their own stories to their children. I’ve been thinking of ways to try to inspire parents to do this, so it was only natural that I should interview my storytelling friend, Winston Stephens. Stephens is a retired kindergarten teacher, and storytelling has been a big part of her life, both and in and outside the classroom.
Children respond better to stories than they do lectures, and I believe they never forget the storytellers in their lives. I asked Winston if there were storytellers in her life that she remembers.
