[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNjk0MTA2X0U0MEVCNUNB] 53% of the US budget goes for military spending. When there are that many programs and weapons and soldiers around, it's only a matter of time before someone decides to use those assets for economic gain. Military spending doesn't create wealth unless it takes natural resources from another country. It can create stability or it can create jobs, however those jobs could be creating goods and services instead. Because of the history of the Great Depression, we know that FDR's policies didn't change the massive economic downturn, only the gearing up of the war machine and the subsequent sale of arms to other countries involved in the war did make for a change. Out of work people became soldiers and worked in factories to produce munitions and gear for soldiers. It's a very likely possibility for the future. We are a deeply polarized people with such a slim margin of power that literally it's a neck to neck finish in any political race. Red or Blue or Red or Blue ad infinitum. If you look today in the news, there are so many warning signs of conflict, that only the most obtuse wouldn't prepare for their family by having extra and taking precautions. Be calm; be prepared; keep your head down. Avoid conflict as most likely you'll be the only one to protect your family, and if you get embroiled in localized activity then you'll doom them. Evasion is far easier than head on into a struggle. Those that survive even a two month window when so many are not preparing...well they might be the ones to rebuild later.Stay optimistic, but vigilant. Even in you don't believe in the Source, consider the possibility that God exists and has sent a messenger in Jesus Christ. [/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
