[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNjEyNTAyX0YxNzFDRDEy] Parched corn For those of you who do not know, there are two kinds of basic corn: sweet corn and field corn. Both are consumed by humans. The first usually eaten as ears or cut into kernels and frozen or canned. The latter is dried and the ground to make cornmeal or masa flour. Masa is the main ingredient in tortillas or in the "bread" of tamales. The way that many First People ate corn was by dehydrating it to save it for the rest of the year, and then parching it. Here's some information on how to prepare that. http://www.utahpreppers.com/2009/10/survival-food-how-to-make-parched-corn/ http://stealthsurvival.blogspot.com/2009/01/simple-survival-foods-pinole.html http://www.preparingtosurvive.com/corn.html As you see, Western Europeans explored the New World, and adopted parched corn for their supplies. It packs a huge amount of nutrition in a pound of grain, far exceeding wheat. Doing this for a long period, it will wear on the enamel of your teeth and wear them down. We don't think about such things now, as our food is mostly tender, but the longer a food is cooked, and the ways in which it's cooked, alter the nutritional value gained. So of course, they ground it with crude mortar and pestle devices. There's a little information about that in the 3rd link. Most people like it. In a collapse, there is little doubt that eating field corn will become commonplace. [/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
