I've often thought 'well, my kids will do it differently'. So many things these days are just, well, they aren't how I'd like my children to do things. I don't want them to grow up with the television, watching TV from 7 till 10 o'clock in the mornings and then becoming stroppy because they have to turn it off again for a few hours to 'play'. I want them to wake early and just play all day, well, apart from when they have to do their chores. I want them to use their imaginations when they play. I won't spoil them too much with toys as I want them to make their own. You know, a piece of string and a stick can make an excellent fishing rod. Or a small branch could make a marvellous walking stick. I want them to use their imaginations as much as possible.
