I don't know if I can pass this on, but I'd teach them to write. Writing is a necessity in life and in my opinion, it's fun.

I kind of worry about the effect devices like Google Glass will have. As everything becomes reactive to voice commands/eye movement/ touchscreen - will that be the end of written language?!?

You know, I haven't thought about the negative effects that Google Glass might have on written language. Although, I can see how it could be used in a positive way.

Imagine if somebody had difficulty hearing or couldn't spell something. With Glass, it might be very helpful to have a visual way to educate.

To have good judgement of people and things, of what is right and wrong, of what is okay and what is not and what type of people are to be trusted and the people that are not.

Now obviously you cannot always guarantee your judgement is correct, and sometimes I'm not but when it comes to people I tend to be a good judgement of character, always foreboding their next step, knowing what they will turn out to be like, not by guessing but by years of trusting and watching others it's become really easy for me to know what a person is like as soon as they speak, now obviously I give them a chance to prove me wrong, and I'm not often biased which is another good thing but I do keep a close eye on these peeps. I wouldn't say I'm street wise though, I still get fooled by others without knowing, but I know people when they speak,their characters scream out to me. After all I've seen it for years, you just watch and learn and then you avoid.

The biggest thing I have instilled in my 2 adult daughters , besides moral values, is to be yourself no matter what and to always be honest to yourself and everyone as the world doesn't need anymore phonies than we already have, and to treat everyone as a friend. But by being your ownself, the rest will follow and lead by example. Never look down on anyone and remember God doesn't make ugly, mean people or junk so we are all created equal
