22 Things To Ask Your Parents These Holidays

23rd November 2017

The reality is having loved ones in our lives is a blessing. While we have our loved ones with us, we shouldn't miss opportunities to talk to them, learn more about what makes them tick and how they came to be the people/parents that we know and love. Don't regret what you didn't ask them or tell them!

Who knows what tomorrow will bring, so today, make it a priority to reach out and really talk to your parents. One thing is for sure…if you don't ask, you will never know...

  • What happy memory will you cherish forever?
  • What was your second choice for my name?

I've got your back!Why LifeLot is the solution

Often the only time you seem to think about your important documents is when you need them. And, often you can't find them because you either don't have an organised and centralised system for storing your important documents and/or the last time you needed them, you simply tossed it back into the sea of papers in your home office instead of putting it back where it belonged!

There is probably some other stuff that only sits in your head and your family would love to know. LifeLot ensures important information is passed through generations. In a medical emergency, a delegate will be able to securely access an Advance Care Plan or Will, and call upon other important documents when they're most needed.


It's simple to set up, free to try, and it can make a world of difference for your family if something happens to you.
