[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0MjQ4NDk1XzQ2N0U5QTQz] Safety Issues with Fuel A lot of people are using generators and fuels than ordinarily do. Some may be drawing fuels from their vehicles because of fuel shortages. It's crucial to use a ground rod driven into the soil and to attach a cable to fuel cannisters to reduce sparks of electricity. Usually there's clipped on. It's easy to generate static charges and then one spark could ignite the fuel while it's transferred. When working on a fuel line, it's important to use brass tools to prevent sparking too. Brass tools are uncommon and usually specially ordered specifically for this use. Obviously you can siphon from fuel tanks, but what's not obvious is that when you introduce a sipon into a tank, often the siponing tube will end up at the fume level and if you try aspirating by mouth, you'll get a lungful of fumes. It's far easier to use a manual hand pump and safer too. In a collapse, some people will try bypassing into fuel tanks. This takes a lot of prudence and expertise and an accidental ignition will kill off the foolhardy who attempt it without any skills. Have a care and use common sense when filling tanks. In a collapse, your tribe may be using a well for water. If you spill fuel around a well site, you just ruined it. [/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
