Good afternoon. My topic is about my children, all of them being student. And it is opening of classes again here in the Philippines in June. I am thinking, how are my children 10 years after now? Can I ask the same thing with you? What would you like your children to be? Thanks

Kids - I want my kids to be good citizens of the country.
Hello. Though I'm still single and has no children yet, in the future, of course I would want my kids to be good citizens of their country. If I can control everything, I would want my first child to be a boy. I would want a big brother to watch after his younger siblings. Also, I would want my kids to be very religious persons even I myself is not really a religious person at all. Having kids who always top the honor roll would be a bonus. LOL. I hope that someday, my future kids would be successful in whatever path they take, meet good people who will be their good friends and if they're ready to have their own family, I would want them to be wise enough to discern every people that come their way. I would want them to end up with a good partner in life who will not make them cry.

I still do not have children but I would like my first child to be fraternal twins. Haha. Anyway, of course there are times that I want them to be somebody that I like and sometimes I even think that I will give them gifts that are related to the career that I want them to go. But, on the other hand, my parents never forced me to go into a career they like and just let me be, and that is what I like about them. I decided then that, yes, I may continue to give my kids gifts that are connected to the career that I want, but if they decided they want to go a different path, then that would be okay with me. As long as they graduate and have a college degree. :D

I have 4 teenage children. I will be happy if they get a nice job they enjoy and they settle down. I don't mind which career they choose in particular. My eldest daughter wants to be an actress, my son considers joining the police force, my other daughter wants to be a model and my youngest wants to work with animals.
