**Introduction**
****************

     Hello! Welcome to My first FAQ! This Faq is for Harvest Moon: A 
Wonderful Life for Gamecube. (just in case you're very very lost) This 
particular FAQ is focused on raising your kid, an awesome feature that 
wasn't very detailed in previous HM games. Personally, It's my favorite 
part of the game, aside from courting girls, and I hope you enjoy it 
too!
     Anyways, fun though it may be, there are many things that are hard 
to figure out and that's what I'm trying to reveal here. This FAQ is 
(obviously) unfinished but it will grow as I continue to play. I'm 
playing three games simultaneously and marrying each girl, so please be 
patient for updates, it's a lot of work. 
     Oh yes, THIS FAQ MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!! I try not to post events 
unless you can get an item out of it, so those will be kept to a 
minimum. However, this FAQ will reveal secrets about your child's 
future and may take some of the surprise fun out of the game. But I'll 
try not to. Thank you and enjoy!!

**Wives' Children** [1.0]
*******************

     Your child will differ greatly depending on whom you marry. 
However, they inherit not only their mother's good looks, but their 
minds as well. Your child's interests, strengths, and future depend 
largely on who you marry, so choose your bride wisely.
     If you show your child to Chris as a Toddler, she will tell his 
fortune. That part is listed here, as well as the details on each 
child's base personality.
     The Child's interests are what they will steer themselves toward 
if you don't influence them. These are things they like. Their 
strengths are things they are good at, whether or not they like it. 
This is good to consider while choosing your wife. If you really want 
your kid to be an athlete for instance, I don't recommend marrying 
Nami, as her child hates exercise as well as being very bad at it.

**Career Paths** [2.0]
****************

     There are a total of six different Career Paths your child can go 
into. If you don't influence them as a toddler at all (which is nearly 
impossible) they will naturally follow their own interests. However if 
you're careful, you can more or less pick their career for them. All 
you need is the right friends, right gifts, and right toys.
     You should try to show them to certain people everyday. This means 
taking them inside their respective houses/workplaces, showing your 
child to them, and being friends with that person. You can also leave 
them in these houses ad let them walk home from there (in toddler stage)
as this will cause them to walk there on their own in later chapters.
If you're really specific about what career you want for them, you should 
try to only keep certain toys in the play chest (Toys can be purchased from Van
starting Ch. 2). If you want to leave it partially up to chance, you 
can always spread your love, show them many different objects, and 
introduce them to a variety of people. It's your kid, have some fun!!

Note: I has been researched and agreed upon by the people in the forum and 
various other resources that the toy blocks do not influence your child in
any particular career path.

*-*-*-*-*
*Scholar* [2.1]
*-*-*-*-*
	
     -Show him-
          Moon ore
          Sugar ore
          Other digsite items (after ch. 2)
          (other digsite items confuse him as a toddler "???")
          Milker/Goat milker (because they're machines?) (credit to: JustinLP6)

     -Introduce him to/Befriend-
          Carter
          Flora
          Daryl
	
     -Take Him To-
          Digsite
          Daryl's Lab

     -Toys-
          Car

     -books in room (ch. 3)-
          The Seven Wonders

     -Diary Entries (ch. 3)-
          "I think I could become a famous scientist." (credit to: Zenin the Zelda girl)

     -Other Signs-
          ?

     -Special-
          If you are friends with Flora and Carter in Ch. 3, you can
get a necklace from her and give it to your son. This will influence 
him towards the scholar career path. Also, if you milk your cows/goat 
using the milker and shear your sheep with the electric razor it will 
help. 

     -Signs-
          One sign that he is going down this path (as a toddler) is 
that he will pull out a book from your bookshelf and start reading. This is 
not a toy from the chest; It is different from the sketchpad so don't mix them up. 
(credit to: Brigittc for telling me where he gets it from)

          Getting the cat from Romana by befriending her and waking up 
later than your wife in Ch. 2 should also help. Get lots of cattle and fowl.
Milk your animals by hand and don't use the electric clippers on your sheep. 
Also, try not to kill your animals, though I know the goat is tempting.  ^_^

          I have heard rumors that if your child becomes interested in
Sports, he may start doing jumping jacks or running around the room.
(child stage) Try to walk instead of riding your horse to further
influence him. You can also recieve a gift from Wally starting ch. 3.
I can't remember whether its a stopwatch or medal though.

***************
**Walkthrough** [3.0]
***************

     This section isn't so much a walkthrough as a guide to what you 
should try to accomplish in each stage/chapter of your child's life. I 
can't tell you how to raise your kid (Why would you want me to?) but I 
can recommend strategies. This section will update as I get further in 
the game.

*********
*Toddler* [3.1]
*********
     This is the stage to get close to your kid. Pick them up and 
cuddle them every day. Maybe even twice, but never for more than 15 
game minutes. If you have Nami's child and are worried about him being 
a "Momma's boy" as everyone seems to think he is, don't worry about it.
This won't go away by ignoring your kid.It's a default of the game. 
However, try to avoid cuddling your kid everytime they ask or extremely
often as they can become spoiled later. However, never playing with your
kid can make them feel neglected. I've heard that Twice a day for about 15
game minutes works pretty well.
     You should also start steering them down the career path of your 
choice (kinda sad huh?). Put the right toys in their toy box. Also, you
should try to bring them around to the people that will influence them
everyday. Go in their houses and such. If you haven't befriended these
people yet, definitely do so soon. Another thing you should do is show
your son items everyday, to influence him. Also, If you go into a persons
house and leave your son their to let him walk home, he is mroe likely to
go visit them in later chapters on his own. DO this as often as possible.
     To tell if your kid likes you, you can do a couple different things.
One, is to pay attention to the symbol above his head when you pick him up.
If it's a music note, he likes you, if its a heart, he loves you. Also, If
you are there when he wakes up in the morning, he will either say "morning daddy"
(which means he likes you) or "mmm..." (which means he doesn't like you as much)
(credit to: Anna for how to tell if your son likes you)


*******
*Child* [3.2]
*******
     Continue to influence your child in this stage. They can talk 
better now so things should be a little more interesting. You can give 
them items that will influence them now. You can no longer show your 
son to people so just continue to be friends and visit their houses.
      There are also several key items you can get in Chapter 3 from 
different villagers that will help influence your kid. Definitely try 
to get these. If a child will not accept a gift, it means that they
are not currently inclined toward that particular career and you should
try again later.
	They also have their own room now, the items displayed within
reflect their interests. Check the books on their shelves. Also, you
can read their diary to find out more. (Its sad how easy it is to read
people's diaries isn't it?)
        One more thing, when you first start this chapter, you an more
or less ignore what they say. your child will start off with a default
set of things to say, that will reflect an interest in every career path.
This means that even if you got the artist ending in chapter 1, your 
child will still say "Hugh is cool" in chapter 2. Don't worry about it. 
When they start to say new things about people, thats when you can see
where they're inclined toward. Also, I believe that their first diary entry
will reflect their natural interest, not current career path. So Nami's
child will automatically start with an entry about Cody. No matter what.
If someone has more info on this, please tell me.

**MORE COMING SOON!!

***********
**Crushes** [4.0]
***********

(Note: I haven't actually got to this point so I don't know all the info)
At some point in the game (about chapter 4) your child will get a crush
on a girl in town, either Kate or Lumina. He will eventually end up marrying her.
The girl he marries depends completely on who YOU married. If you married Celia or Muffy
He will end up with Kate. However, if you married Nami, he will go for Lumina.
I have heard there is a cinema scene for this as well.

     Your child says some interesting things throughout their life, so 
I figured hey, why not record them?! These are just the ones I have 
seen; if you have more, please e-mail me with the phrase, age of your 
child, and wife. Thanx!

**Glitches** [6.0]
************

Apparently there are some interesting glitches in this game
(though I haven't actually seen any myself). Thought It'd be 
cool to have a section on them. (Note: these are not official names,
either the credited person named them or I made them up)

     *Don't Yawn*

  I have noticed that sometimes if you are holding your child and you yawn,
  the game will freeze. glitch or annoying, programming error? you make the call.     


     *Quiet child glitch*
     (credit to: The OSHO)

  When carrying the kid to Cody, the artist, I set the child down in the
  green patch just behind the Pyro Twins' tower. When I  I tried to pick
  him up, neither the 'Talk' or 'Hold options came up. The kid just stood
  there, and I waited for a couple hours (game time), and nothing happened. 
  However, when Nami called for bedtime, the child was there.

     *Disappearing Child Glitch*
     (credit to: The OSHO)

  I was carrying the boy up the hill to Romana's mansion. I wanted to talk
  with someone on the path w/o the kid, so I set him down.
  There was a sort of yellow flash, and the child disappeared. I went into my
  house later, and the area where the bed is supposed to be was empty. The
  space still acted like it was there though, and when I moved to the right of
  the room, the bed was at the bottom of the room. And voila, the kid was alseep
  in it, and before 9 PM, no less. I could interact with the image the same
  as with the empty bed-space, and when the cutscene for Nami calling bedtime,
  the bed was in the correct place again.
