Send them to school, make them do homework.

I will give them treats such as new games and consoles but they only get to play it if I see straight A's

I will also sign them up for martial arts clubs to keep them fit and safe on the streets and encourage them to join sports.

This is how I was raised. My kids will turn out just fine hopefully.


Damn, I would hate to have you for a parent.

As for me, "Now son, this is how you cook up heroin." Just kidding.

I haven't really thought about it too much, as I really have no desire to have kids any time soon.

Really? Most kids would kill to have their parents pay for them to join awesome martial arts clubs 4 times a week.

Also...you seem to have missed the treats part, I will give them anything they want as long as they are doing superbly in school.

Teh...today's society -__- they'd rather have the treats without the hard work. Shame...

Sorry it's taken so long for me to get back on here.

I actually didn't miss anything. Getting straight A's isn't feasible for most kids, especially as they get further and further into school. I always got straight A's up until 6th grade. Then I got 1 C and the rest A's. My Parents were like "oh my god!", but they didn't take away my gaming systems or anything. Anyway, if you set the bar too high you'll only end up making things worse.

As far as the martial arts go, I don't think you should force it on them. If you want to insist that they do some kind of extracurricular activity that would be reasonable, but let them choose what kind of thing they want to do. Just because you like to do Ninjutsu doesn't mean that your kids will too.

I never said force, I said encourage, and if they don't want to do it thats fine. Also think of the whole consoles thing as an incentive to at least try and get good grades. My future kids will have an education, and I want them to perform to the best of their ability. I didn't know that was such a harsh thing to do.

Home school them. The school system here in america has become the real life equal to a Mugen Gakuen High School. (that's a sailor moon term..)

I will homeschool my children, at least up through middle school during their formative years. Not that I think all public schools suck, but the truth is that they have a limited budget and can't do or show all the things that I want my children to know. I want to be able to take my child on a field trip a week...I live in Virginia, but I still haven't seen everything there is to see in this state, much less other states. I will probably send my child to a private highschool (maybe public), because by the time I have children my highschool education will be equal to a middle school one. I don't feel like I would have the answers to every question at that point. I want my children to be millions of times smarter than I am, and have the options for any extracurricular activities they want as well.
I don't go to church at the moment, but I think bible school was important in my youth. But I don't know I would force my children to go to church...I haven't decided yet.

Food - I don't want a picky eater! My children will have a balanced meal, and they will learn to try everything. They have the choice not to like some things, but if it goes overboard (like every green vegetable known to man) we are going to have a serious discussion, and they will be made to eat some things they don't like. Sweets are fine, in moderation - never cut them off completely because once they are able to get sweets on their own, they binge. Sodas are crack-in-a-can...again, I wouldn't cut the children off completely, but I would limit them.

I would make them go outside to play. I would give them assigned reading times. And I would limit the amount of TV and computer time, until they are able to make correct decisions on their own about how they should use their time wisely. Kids don't go outside enough these days.

I will discipline my children! I will teach them manners and how to listen to their elders. They will learn that respect is given to them by how they treat others. They will learn please and thank you, yes and no mam/sir. Most of all, I will teach them that patience is a virtue and that honesty is always the best policy. My parents never hit me unless it was a last resort (and it was a spanking, nothing more then that). Most creative punishment was from my grandmother - she made me write a sentence (like I will not take the dog out without his leash) 100 up to 1000 times, depending on how bad the thing I did was. The two worst things I was ever told as a child: You are selfish, and I am disappointed in you. Those hurt and teach much more then any spanking or time out ever will.

But most of all, I just want my children to be happy and healthy and know I would support them in everything they want to do. I want them to know that they really can do anything they put their mind to, and that good things do come to those that put in the work and effort for them.

You'll make a wonderful mother. This should be a playbook for all females wanting to be mothers someday.
