[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0MjU2NjQzX0M0ODhDQkQ2] [b]What to expect when the military arrive... [/b] The military are good at two things: killing people and breaking things... Rush Limbaugh The military are not intended for humanitarian effort. It's not really part of their mission. Sure they can do things since they're extraordinarily well supplied.They understand logistics and supplies. They have to in order to feed and clothe and provide water and secure perimeters for their soldiers, so government officials use them to feed victims in a catastrophe. [b]Does that last sentence make any logical sense whatsoever?[/b] The problem is that they're armed and not law enforcement. They're used to giving orders to enemies. They're used to showing deadly force. They're used to efficient shooting. When the military arrived in Hurricane Katrina, the first thing they did was secure weapons. This is illegal. Technically the military arriving and used in this fashion breaks Posse Comitatus. They're a blunt instrument used that causes major legal issues and breaks many government laws. To this day, many people still have not been compensated for illegal seizures of weapons, nor apologized to for rough treatment. People don't care because they want security. This makes me shudder. As people get frustrated and hungry and scared, they do foolish belligerent actions. The military is not trained to work with American civilians.[b] The ones who have worked in urban settings are used to guerrilla fighters in Afghanistan and Iraq. They are hardly the same. [/b] Keeping a low profile and facilitating calm in your community is a good thing. Getting in the face of a soldier who hasn't been trained to deal with American civilians is a foolish thing. Breaking the law by doing ____ in front of military personnel is ridiculous. The cure is worse that the catastrophe. [/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
