Children will find their own thing to do, so no matter what you say to them, they are still going to do what they want to do. If they find an interest in snakes, they are going to be interested in snakes. So no matter how you push them, they are still going to go back to the snakes. So if the kid's into baseball, he's going to be into baseball. You can't push him into soccer. So I just let them find what they like, and support them in what they do. So if Cain wants to build an arcade, I support him in his arcade. If he wants to play basketball, I'll take him to practice every day and watch him play. Cheer for him. But I'm not going to push him into a different sport that he doesn't want to, or tell him you should be playing with Leggos and not playing with blocks. He loves Leggos . He plays Leggos almost all day long and, you know, I buy him Leggos . And that's what we always spend all his money on - Leggos .
