I have tried to do that with my boys. They always enjoyed learning and I enjoyed teaching them. As they got older and wanted to learn things that I didn't know, like surfing and sailing, I had to find other teachers. They're now grown, and I have a granddaughter that I'm having fun with teaching some girly crafts that they weren't interested in like embroidery and cake decorating.

My mother would bring me to Dunkin' Doughnuts for a treat and we would get a chocolate milk and a chocolate doughnut. On occasion I continue that with my son. But mostly I create moments with him and memories since I had parents who were not too interested in doing that with me. My husband was a competitive swimmer and so he spends many hours in the pool teaching my son to swim but from a non pressured stance. And my husband does triathlons so my son also runs, bikes, and swims mini triathlons my husband puts together for him (my baby is four). We also bike in warm weather with my son in a cart behind my husband. We have a zoo membership and spend many weekends at the zoo and have now since he was born. My husband also had books read to him by his dad and we do chapter books before bed to continue the tradition. My husband also had no television when he was young and we also have no television now.
