[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NDkxNTQ0X0Q2RDRENjg5] Contagion and Discernment post-collapse http://www.myfoxny.com/story/20101981/far-rockaway-cough Right now in the worst affected area of Hurricane Sandy, there's a cough going around. Simultaneously there's an epidemic of whooping cough. Historically there are issues with mold in homes, especially when rainwater comes in, or flooding occurs. What is going on in that locale? This will be a common issue post-collapse. News will spread slowly. We're used to CNN and Fox News and the Internet. Then post-collapse there won't be communication other than locally or if strangers come in, much as occured in pioneer days. When contagion was suspected, people stayed away in order to better their chance of survival. Strangers were not allowed to visit and were turned away at borders, because they were a primary vector in which contagion spread. It could be simply a flu locally, but given that people are immune compromised from exposure, lack of adequate diet, dehydration, and being sleepless, then it could grow serious. As preppers you should imagine how YOU would treat it, diagnosis it, and refer to both medical books and herbal books on methods for eradicating it. The Hurricane Sandy news items are opportunities to independently research prepping. It's not merely to show altruistic concern nor grotesquely act as spectators. [/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
