[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NDk1MjY5XzEwN0U0OTY0] Daily cleaning up post-collapse A pitcher and a wash basin are regular items in most country homes even today.Usually they're dusty and not used, but simply decorative. If you've visited a rural area, you probably have seen them: http://lh6.ggpht.com/-jsJZsgKFTEs/TdBmPJxpKRI/AAAAAAAAAhE/z7uRazKFnT0/tina%252520alvarez%252520pitcher%252520and%252520basin%252520antique%252520photography%25252095.jpg This is the primary way that you'll be cleaning up post-collapse. Most people will slowly run out of soap. They won't know how to make it, and so because of gathering firewood, foraging, hunting, and working outside, they'll get grimier and grimier. The best way to get clean is to use a little pinch of wood ash in the water. This will create a mild lye solution, but you must teach people how to wash. Getting that in your eye will burn just as much as soap if not more so. Some soaking pine needles in water can also be used to clean as long as the solution doesn't soak long. Rinse well in either case. Because most people haven't planned, they'll rarely have water to clean themselves. Many diseases will occur as well as bacterial skin infections and then later serious infections from coliform bacteria like Shigella or Salmonella. You want a special basin to use only for this purpose, otherwise you'll contaminate any water used in it for other purposes. A smart prepper will have a special area used, or simply the bathtub with the basin sitting on the closed toilet. Probably by then, the sewers won't work anyway, and you'll need the space. Because the sewers don't work, you must catch the water and not let it drain out the tub. Probably if you have a lick of sense, you'll divert the water from your tub into a grey water holding tank, and then water your garden with it. The mild soap solution won't hurt your plants, but of course it's more basic than normal, so watch your pH levels. All greywater used to clean dishes or the kitchen area will be utilized in the garden as well. [/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
