for example take your kids shooting a Few times, don't let them shoot at first let them watch you and your wife shoot then when they demonstrate the necessary safety and handling skills start them out with something small (ie. .22, .223) them very slowly work your way up as they age. if you start a child off with something big and scary they will never want to shoot again.

here are some links on teaching gun saftey to kids

NRA - Safety Information for Parents

good luck and have fun the world of firearms is fun but you should always be safe
