It is unique from person to person. Why should you write an autobiography? There are many reasons.

# Where were you born?
When children grow up they like to know where their family roots have begun. It is much interesting if you were born in a different region or a different country. Then those children will be more interested and will want to know about your family there. I think that gives beginning for those children to reach their family tree!
# Where did you grow up?
One day your children will want to know where you lived and how you lived. They would like to know about your home, your childhood friends, your neighborhood, as well as how was your room then. I’m pretty sure they will be more interested in those as there is a huge difference between your past and their present.
# What did you do as a kid?
This is a very common question most of the kids have. One day they want to compare their life with yours as a kid. They will want to know what you did when you were a child and a teenager. From that, they will get a better understanding of you as well as themselves.
# How did you select my name?
Most of the kids ask this question even once in their life. Sometimes you may name them because you just loved that name. Sometimes you did that after someone you loved and respected. You should tell them the truth behind their name and it will make them proud of their identity!
# How was I like a baby?
You should tell them good and bad things about themselves. Some of your stories about their early childhood will surprise them as those memories are unlikely to remember themselves!
