    Definately the country.  I grew up in the city, large schools, lots of drugs and rude people. My children were raised in the country, at least semi-country. Smaller schools where they received more personal attention. Drugs are a problem everywhere, but usuallly less in smaller towns. Most people in the country seem to be more friendly and are willing to help out if needed.  In the country, you learn to appreciate nature and have a healthier environment.

    I've lived in a suburb and the country so I'm a bit partial to both. It seems like city kids have less places to play outside.

    In the country or at least a town with a yard they can play in their own yard, have a dog and get more exercise.

    If you love your kids it is better to raise them in a city because after all they would settle in a city and not in a country house. The life in a city is much different from life from the countryside anywhere in the world.

    I'd pick the countryside or in a town. I regret fully that my kids have grown to their teens without experiencing the same experiences I had when I was a kid living in a town, a far travel to the city. The down-to-earth living, peaceful and healthier environment would truly mold my children with humility in appreciating the value of what hard life is.

    My kids miss the natural playgrounds of hills and grass, plains and plateaus, stepping into streams and creeks.  Abundantly be around nature of tall, robust trees bearing sweet fruits, the cool shade the trees offer and the fresh air of the mountains. The playing with insects, catching butterflies and grasshoppers under the scorching sun. The playing of traditional Filipino outdoor games is much more fun to be around with friends. The awesome sight of the night sky visibly bearing twinkling stars and a bright moon every night. The visibility of lunar and solar eclipse right outside our door. The refreshing feeling to be out playing under the pouring rain and seeing a huge rainbow. The feeling of being close to the ground hearing from the rooftop and witnessing through the windows the storms, typhoons, thunder and lightning.

    Be outside with the friendly neighbours and humble playmates. Listening to the sounds of the cocks and birds in the early mornings and the neighbourhood dogs howling in unison right past midnight (that will keep my kids under their sheets for sure). Learning of old stories, legends and folk tales of our ancestors and from elderly neighbours. The helping, caring and sharing what good neighbours do. Learning the humble way of livelihood. Experiencing the presence of domestic and farm animals. A much appreciated way on how we practice our Christmas Tradition, feasts and festivals. When we know most of the people and neighbours, we are able to visit them for pastime.  The feeling of content about safety when little children being out, going to school and coming home by themselves. The implementation of curfew hours to be safely home on time without any problem. ~

    In the countryside. I know for sure that this is the best way, since my parents did this and the ranch and my horse were the place to be. I love the country but don't live there now. I am happy living in the city, but back to the question, Children learn the work ethic so nicely by feeding cattle, driving the hay truck for the brother and his friends, when hauling hay...I did it, might not be for all people, but all of us are different and I must stop before I write a hub or something...jeez I love doing this and would be up all night if I could.

    I would rather raise children in the countryside, perhaps near a small town. I feel that they should grow up near nature so that they can be taught to respect it. That being said, I would also like them to grow up knowing social situations and contact with other people, not just their family, which is why I also say near a town.
