[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNTMxNDk0XzI2RjMzNzc5] Useful wild edibles: Kudzu Kudzu is an transplanted species from Japan. Like honeysuckle, it was brought over to help with soil erosion and to protect the collapse of hillsides. Now it's considered a terrible nuisance because it grow a foot a day, and perpetually trimmed, will take over like an alien from space. While no one should cultivate kudzu, we all should be harvesting it. Asian people do, all parts are edible except the seeds, and it is full of nutritional value and not bad to eat. In a collapse, you want to find easily available food sources that are abundant, and all along the South, kudzu is free for the picking.

There's a huge amount of things it can treat like high blood pressure, reduce alcohol desire, help with insulin resistance, glaucoma, etc. One wonders if Asians used it to get rid of it, or if they were determined to try any way they could! It can fed to livestock, making it a very important food source for anyone self-reliant. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
