    I would probably raise them similarly to how my parents raised me. I might tease my children less but other then that not much.

    I would use basic common sense to realise how terrible my genes are and not have children who would inevitably inherit these genes and suffer like I did.

    No hitting, more empathy, less selfishness, different approach to sports (I think one should learn to ski, play tennis, sail, ride and then do it for fun, practicing competitively only the sport they like the most), try to teach them 3 languages (my parents speak 3-4 fluently but taught me only 2, and then went on complaining about my bad German and inexistent French), no getting terribly upset for unserious things.

    I would not force any religious path upon them . If no interest is shown then so be it . Too much valuable time is wasted unnecessarily in the pursuit of mythological teachings and rules .

    You are only here once , so make sure you enjoy it and live by your own rules ....not someone else's .
