You never cease to amaze me and I hope you never do! :hf: :rockon: [/quote] You are sweet Lady. Note the capital L. [b]Doing your own research[/b] The easiest method of doing research is using Google Books. Many prepping topics are esoteric. For example, let's say you were looking up Native American tribal lore on medicinal herbs. There's probably a handful of ethnobotanical or medical or arthropological studies done, but it's difficult to find them. I've found many through Google Books, and often if old then they include the whole ebook. Not only that, but also the value is that it's searchable too versus straining your eyes looking through pages and pages of dusty tomes. Believe me, my hardback library is enormous, but many times I can quickly find an answer from this research. Google Scholar has much more authoritative links to research, but often they only point you in the right direction. What you can do after that is see if your library has a membership in any of of hundreds of academic databases like EBSCO. Usually you can do those searches online as well, so you can look up some rare study about a topic. archive.org has free ebooks on it in which the copyright has expired. This means that you can download thousands of books for nothing. Likewise Project Guttenberg has thousands of books for free in this category. http://archive.org/index.php http://www.gutenberg.org/ Realize that old information is not necessarily valid. You have to continue to research and ensure that it is. In many cases someone picked up the baton, and like a relay race carried the research onward. Having a resource library is crucial. These documents can downloaded and stored on a USB hard drive. This means that you could potential recover them at will and this would be among your treasures. You might be the only person in your community with that knowledgebase. You might end up becoming a community leader or teacher or shaman. [/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
