What do we really want for our children?

Happiness I used to think; now I don’t. Laura Ingalls Wilder put the desired attributes of life very well I feel: be helpful, be kind and be courageous. That, I think, is what I want. Eglantyne Jebb said that all humanity is one; I want my children to think that. Robin Williams, in Night of the Museum, said that the secret to happiness is physical exercise. I want my children to know that. What do you want for your children? If you are a teacher, what do you want to give the children you teach?
