About Roberta Schultz Benor
I have worked with ages newborn to 100 years old in my positions as
parenting instructor, English teacher, and director of a senior citizen
After being inspired by the seniors at a community center, I began a business
to record people’s life stories. Let Us Remember,
founded in 1986, is a family history service through which you can be
interviewed on CDs which can also be transferred to transcripts, so you can
have a cherished memory of your family history.
My writing career flowed from some of my other interests. When I became a
parenting instructor, I wrote How to Succeed in Parenting: 120 Ways to
Have a Great Family (First Edition 2004) in response to requests from
the parents in my classes. Later, I wrote The Keys to Senior
Housing: A Guide for Two Generations (First Edition 2009) to share my
professional expertise about where seniors should live and how adult children
can help with those difficult decisions.
My articles have appeared in the "Washington Post," local
newspapers, literary magazines, and online. I have led workshops and given
lectures on parenting, recording life stories, and intergenerational
activities. I have also given lectures on cruise ships.
I was raised in Southern California and have lived in the Washington, DC,
suburbs for over forty years. My husband, David, and I have three adult
children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law, and five grandchildren.
