Tuesday's Tip

When interviewing family, do NOT ask Yes/No questions. Sometimes being vague is better than specific. Remember to ask why. Why did you get married at that time of the year? Why did you name your son that? Why did you choose her as your matron of honor and not your sister? Why? Let them elaborate on family events!
