[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NDkwODAxXzcyQjYxMzM0] Essential equipment: Fresnel Lens Since there's apparent interest in SHTF Cooking and people want to minimize learning the most basic skill of firemaking, here's an essential piece of equipment that is vastly superior to a magnifying lens: a fresnel lens. This form of lens creates a very intensively hot focal point when the sun's rays are hitting the top of the lens.

If placed in a frame, and one has basic carpentry skills, then a long term cooking device can be made which generates considerable heat.

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
