    If you have kids... will you tell them that you used to write? tell them that you used to steal paint? teach them how to do it? Will you supprt them if they decide to do it? let them know is their shit is wack or bump it? show them your old sketches?tell them about train cops and who o look out for? Bring them into the yard at night and tell them which trains are the best to hit? Fill their stockings on christmas with caps gloves and markers?.... you get the idea.

    who uses the word "bump" in real life?...

    but theres already a thread about this AND, I would probably encourage my kids to get into art, and not close their minds towards a good father theres no way i would encourage bombing...have some respect for yourself and your kids.

    This is a good thread. I think that when and if i have kids which i guess i want to do when i get older and shit, im just gonna let them do there thing. And if i see that something they really like is something i can provide my knowledge and encouragement for, by all means, im going to support it and let them do what they want. Unlike my parents, im gonna want to see my kids throwups, and im gonna let my kid go out with friends and shit when hes of the right age. But of course ill tell my kids about me doing graffiti. Ive learned some amazing and sad lessons, and seen as well as done some awesome things all thanks to graffiti. I dont think itd be right for me not to share those personal experiances with my kids.

    Yeah definately, itll be like my parents with weed. Sit em down, teach them the ins and outs, but not give away any of the lessons you learn on your own.

    My kid is growing up surrounded by it.
    I put my best sketches on his walls. When we get possession of our condo in 2 months here, me and one of my freinds are going to paint one if his walls completely with bug's life characters and leaves and weird vines.
    He'll know about graffiti. I won't teach him to go out and bomb and get his name up, cuz i dont think thats what graffiti really is, plus i dont want to end up bailing him out. I'll teach him it's an art, like any other art it takes practice. There are legal places to paint and improve and that's where i will teach him he can paint. Plus i will still be painting and improving for some time, so i'm sure he will get alot of exposure to me painting legal pits and whatnot.

    and this topic has been covered before, make sure to do a search before posting new topics.

    I don't think i would tell my kid about graffiti unless they approach me about it, or i can see the tell tale signs that they're intrigued about it. Firstly i feel it should bea personal pursuit, if they liek it and they wanna do it then they should, but i don't want to tell them 'i did graffiti and you should too'.

    But then on top of that, i wouldn't completely ondone it, like i don't want my kid to get busted by the cops havea record, stealing paint (which we all know leads to the general habit of stealing more shit) defacing property. not to mention the danger of beefing and coming across otehr writers . . I dunno.

    just wondering if you guys have checked the age poll here yet but most of the people are 16 and under... and with that statement i hope noone is having kids anytime soon. and for the rest of us that are 21 and up i think we should let them find it for themselfs. if you think about it none of our parents (as far as i know) introduced us to graffiti and look where we are at. hittin all kinds of stuff. mad skills.

    all im saying is that if my kids find it and i see them doing it ill embrace it but im not gonna push it on them. ya know.
