I have 2 daughters and one son, in that order. My son is now 12 and he has always hated this hobby. When I was his age I would've rode a boat motor around the yard if I thought it would go. I did anything to ride or drive or fix an engine. I built stuff from wood too, mostly junk. My mom always made me help my dad which I never really liked cuz it was usually late at night and cold. He worked a LOT of hours. I didnt know it at the time but I was learning. Later on, I did more of the work-he was still on a lot of hours. We never farmed, we rented out, but he let me play around with various tractors we collected. Now, my son is 12, and he hates anything to do with engines or tractors. Let me point out, we are barely getting by money wise and buying a big project is out of the question. I have to work a lot of hours too with just enough time to get the minimum done and he does do sports-something I always hated. He's does computers and some games which we limit but, all kids do, and I'm not going to begrudge him that. In this day and age if you stifle computer growth you're only hurting your chance of advancement. Thats what I did in the 90's, hated and fought puters all the way and paid for it at my job when promotions came and I was PC retarded. I try to get him out with me but he really has no interest. Heck, i bought a quad last summer and saturday he said "you drive". What?! He does want a Willy's jeep to restore but funds are short. I thought he would be my tractor restoring partner but now I'm thinking of selling most of them off. He's real good with his hands and likes the building and mechanical type stuff but hates the outdoors and tractors. Does your son hate tractors?
