    Default Would you make the love of anime a family tradition?

    Would you encourage your children to watch anime? I'd raise my kids with a firm beliefs in the love of anime, I'd have to introduce them to titles from my time! No I don't mean FORCE, I mean ENABLE...just show them how you appreciate it. At the end of the day it is their choice ^.^

    A tradition... would tradition be an everyday thing? Well when I get older I suppose I may grow out of anime, but watch hit titles and such would be a great thing to do with my family.

    WOW!! this would be very cool, I would love to introduce this to them or even spoil them about the stories I've watched, But I will not try to encourage them to watch because they might get addicted like I do, I mean if they're going to school it might tire them to attend their classes because they are already hooked with what they are watching. I mean they can watch but not to the point of wasting their time,there has to be a limit I guess. XD I wanna be a good parent someday so I wanted them to be responsible with their own time someday.^^

    Most definitely. I would introduce anime to them and show them all the old anime that I loved so then they could pick anime of their own... If they are even interested in anime when I introduce it to them...

    Well, not necessarily. I'd let my kids watch a variety of stuff, and let them decide which they like the most. If it happens to be anime, or cheesy kungfu movies, then I'll have lucked out.

    Nope never. Too much garbage. If I can I want to teach my children to watch as little TV and such as possible. I'm already hooked but if I can keep my kids off this drug then I will.

    I will just let them discover it after all kids have their own wants and don't if they happen to like anime then I will let them watch anime but if don't like it I will not force them.

    I wouldn't force them to watch it, only introduce them to it... if they get hooked then it runs in the family.

    My kid watches anime with me alot. He's 5 so I sometimes watch kids anime with him. He loves DBZ, we also watch
    Keroro Gunso, Chii's Sweet Home. He also liked Pokemon, Lil Pri and Polar Bear Cafe. Really nothing cuter than a 5 year old singing the Chii song. :kawaii

    I'd introduce it to them, but I wouldn't force it upon them. I'd rather have any kid of mine make their own decisions and form their own opinions. If it turns out we do have something in common, all the better. ^_^

    I don't intend on having kids, but if I must answer the question: It'll be all up to them. If they like anime, then it's all good; we have a common interest/hobby, and I'd show them support.

    I mean, it'll be pretty cool if a family's parents and children share the same hobbies rather than have the old "That's something their generation likes" mentality.

    I'm sorry but I won't ever do that. You cannot force something you love down someone's throat. If they love it then it's all good but if not then they're free to choose what they want.

    I wouldn't. Because I personally would like to see my kids be their happiest by pursuing what they are naturally drawn to, so long as it doesn't have to mean that they should harm themselves or others. I might not always be happy with what they want to do, but isn't it the role of a parent to love and accept their children for who they are regardless of external influence?

    I am definitely going to brainwash them with as many ghibli movies and other anime as possible when they're young but if they end up not liking it then I'm obviously not going to force them to continue watching

    I'll just let them see me watch and they might eventually discover it on their own. I'll let them do whatever hobby they want as long as it's not troublesome in my part.

    For a family tradition, I don't think so. I think when I hear "tradition" it's something that is forced to a person to do. Well, I came to love anime in my own and not with others nor my parents. But if someday I get to have children of my own, I'd definitely introduce it to them since it's something that I grew up with, something that I am proud even with this age. I'd say that I love anime so much to my children as much as I love drawing. Maybe tell them that I learn drawing in anime. Or I could watch anime with them once in a while. And it's up to them if they like it or not. Though all of this ends with parenting so it really depends.
