State Assets. Funded education. A decent and sustainable health system.

I think they will be grateful that you brought them up in a country that can feed it's self, and that's not over populated, the next 10 years will be difficult as the world adjusts to a decreasing oil supply, I see the future as a mirror of the past, when I grew up milk was delivered from the back of a horse and cart and produced just up the road local trade will become the norm, so teach them practical skills, the engineer and trades man will start to be valued, and they will do fine.

Science is but an organized system of ignorance

To live in a Democratic Country.
Democracy is rare on this planet and in most countries it has been earned by the blood those prepared to pay the price.
Democracy is not always pretty and popular but it is the best sustainable system developed so far.

The greatest gifts you can give your children are a sense of self worth, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of wonder at the beauty in the world. :)
With these, they can take on anything.

I agree and would also like to see a written constitution based around the secular state government system.

Agree with Hawkspur and would add, respect for others, and a real knowledge of what love is

Spend time with them and behave and speak around them how you want them to behave and speak in public. Talk to your child/ren often and tell them about your family history and stories about your childhood.

If you are looking for a material object, perhaps an item that has been in the family - I appreciate and cherish above all other gifts I have been given, a doll that used to belong to my grandmother.

This is out of left field having been raised a Catholic but no longer a practicing Catholic (for many reason) but introduce your children to the Ten Commandments. Seriously. I was raised on them but to this day see them as a moral and ethical code to life and how you behave and how you act towards others. They will be good human beings as a result and life will pay them back.
