What would you (do you) teach your kids?

This post is inspired by a question Iddo posted over at FriendFeed, in The Life Scientists room:

Teaching my 7 year old Logo (using kturtle). Any ideas for a good programming book for kids?

Other than programming, what would you (or do you) teach your kids? What kind of skills science geeks consider important, that aren’t really tought in schools (at least not at the level you’d want schools to teach them)?

My first thoughts were about remixing digital media, 3D modelling and printing (I believe 3D printers will become quite cheap in few years) and technical side of photography but I didn’t really spend much time on this topic (it’s obvious from this list). What’s your opinion?

UPDATE: Feel free to comment on this post’s FriendFeed thread.
