Both our kids are grown up and gone, but are they? Just seems like they are always calling and wanting something like money. We as parents can only raise there kids to be what the kids want to be not what we want them to be. My husband is one that has always wanted so much for the kids to have more than what we had as far as education and so forth. My daughter for example did not want to go to college and he wanted her to so she could do better for herself. So to please him she tried and she just could not handle it and he thinks she was a quitter but I know where she is coming from. School was tough for me too and it was for her. She just did not want to do it. They have to make there own choice.

I educate my children about the world around them in many different ways. I introduce them to new people, we visit museums, watch educational videos. All that I hope is that my children will want to use their best interests and talents and soar. I would never push my children to be like me if that isn't what they would like to do.

I don't have children but I would want them to make their own choices and decisions in life based on what they know and understand and their beliefs, which hopefully will be based on a strong foundation that I have provided for them.

I want my children to make their own choices. They need to do what they want. After all, I'm not living their life. They are. I have my own life and they will have theirs. At least that's as it should be.

Hi! Welcome to myLot! To answer your discussion, I would first try to guide my kids onto making a good decision about their future. I will take into mind their capacities and skills, as well as their interests. I will also show my kids the type of work that I engage in. Later on, it's up to my kids to decide what they really want to become or what they want to be doing. Thus, I guide them first and give them some ideas, then it would be their call. I will support whatever decision my kids would make. I think it's better that way. Anyway, enjoy myLotting!

Well it depends on how I turn out in the end. If I struggle paycheck to paycheck, I would like them to choose something better. But I wouldn't really mind it's up too them, but when a kid turns 18 their legally free to do as they wish.
