Religion, then soccer, then anime. In that order.

wouldn't deliberately "pass" anything onto them but i'd definitely expose them to various interests and guide them to find their own niche. if they're interested in what i do then i'd gladly mentor them

The only introduction I will give is through what I do, if they question I will answer to the best of my abilities. I think there is no need for anything more than that, kids are like sponges they will soak up anything within their surroundings which is quite the phenomenon, they'll inadvertently observe me as I do similar to them.

I'd like to raise my kids to be multilingual. There are just too many positives to that to ignore, but toss in my love of language...

Aside from that, I don't want to intentionally impress things onto my kids. They'll probably pick things up from me and other sources; I intend to be supportive, of course, but I don't want to make them feel pressure to pursue anything in particular.

I don't want to force any of my interests on them, but if they're curious i'd be more than glad to show them anything. I will most definitely put them in boxing and Tae kwon do. I don't want them to get bullied or be bullies. My parents told me as a child "don't LET yourself get beat up because if you do, you're coming home to another beating" and I will tell my kids the same thing.

I've always hoped I could pass my stamp collection on to one of my kids, but it's a dying hobby, and perhaps no one will want it! The last time I went to a stamp exposition about 10 years ago, I was pretty sure I was the youngest person there by quite a bit. I grew up in a town of about 10,000 which had two places one could purchase stamps for collections (in addition to the local Post Office, of course). Nowadays, one might find one stamp shop only in cities or metropolitan areas with several hundred thousand people or more.

As long as my children like to read and go hiking I will know I have raised them right.
