    Default Spin off - What you will teach your kids now that your parents didnt teach you

    Just wondering what others think they'll teach their kids that their parents didn't have to teach them.

    About health and fitness and cooking healthily. My parents are not into these things and I was a bit of unhappy chubby teenager. I have lost a stack of weight over the lady few years and love the gym. DH also is a personal trainer so our DD will be exposed to these things early on

    To be resilient. That not everything in life will go your way but that's okay because it toughens you up. My mum always came into bat for us re: friendships and school and it didn't really teach me how to cope, be adaptable and flexible. Although she meant the best!

    I'll be showing my kids lots of different food, get them to try new things & give them variety! I honestly didn't even know about wraps (like salad ones) until I was in my late teens LOL I also never had things like feta or curries until I was about 18 and tried it at a resturant. I'm so scared to try new things now because I was raised on plain boring stuff all the time. not really something I'll 'teach' them but something I want to do for them

    To travel and enjoy life. My mother despises me and anything I do and she thought that I was being selfish for taking time off work (annual leave) to travel and enjoy my 20's.

    There are SO many things that I will not do that she did... I hope to be able to accept my child for who they are.

    I agree with everything you all have already said. I will add:

    - to have self esteem and confidence and that what other people think doesnt matter
    - they are important no matter what
    - they are my life

    How to deal with emotions. Good and bad. How to socialise, if I can. How to look after their bodies and how to LOVE themselves for who they are.

    travel and different cultures.

    my mom tried as hard as she could with culture but back then australia was just so sheltered still, even though she was from america. she often told me about the struggles with multiculturalism america had in the 50's etc. though and how important it was to fight for equality.

    we are fortunate enough to be able to travel and hubby and i love taking the kids overseas, to different cultural festivals here in perth etc.
