teaching your kids about life and about responsibilities is helping them
Other ways to teach that, but I'm simply going to bring my kids up in the Phils in an austere environment whilst sending them to international school. They won't have to pay for anything but they will sure as hell know what poverty means. They'll get **** all toys, the ones they do get they will have to work for, but they will never have to worry about education or housing. Ever. I'll be a hard nosed bastard except when it comes to those two things. None of my money will go towards fancy cars or overly fancy houses, everything will be purely utilitarian/investments. I will have one nice thing, a decent bike....and if they want something nice they will have to show some long term commitment to the hobby they choose. I'll have my own office they are never allowed in, basically I'm going to go 1920's on them. There will be no computer games until they are 12 (unless one of them has dyspraxia, as I reckon it helps), they can use their imagination or visit the small **** library I will have amassed by then.
Too many distractions, not enough value on what actually matters. Education and financial stability.
I think I will enjoy it though, I certainly enjoyed teaching my wifes young cousins some foundations of physics whilst I was over there for a month....and then goofing around with them once they'd done the work.
Also, I'm a bit drunk but that's the man I think I want to be.
