[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NTY0OTMzXzcwMzk5OENG] Coping with death: callousness On the frontier prairie, death was common. It's possible that it's going to happen in high amounts based upon a lack of retribution or law to have a community response to it happening. It's very possible that in a world without rule of law, that many deaths will occur and so people will grow callous to it, as long as it isn't happening to them. Think about a nurse on an oncology ward. She sees death every day. She can choose to feel each one intensely, get close to only some, or try to distance herself from death to cope with the enormous amount of death that's occurring. Most people only experience a few deaths in their lifetimes in any close way. If you're almost daily or weekly experiencing death, you can become very brittle from that happening. A shaman in a post-collapse may feel the same way. A whole generation may end up being very callous to death as a result. People might simply take the law into their own hands in vengeance, or they might create public executions, or attack whole tribes for the action of a single member. It may become a time of true lawlessness. People imagine a death as a single event with one person dying. The death of a single family member in reality may dramatically change the survivability of their entire family. It will also change an entire tribe if it's a key person like a shaman or leader. Because of retribution, sometimes families of an offender were also killed due to concern about vengeance. Sometimes captured victims who had been forced into sexual slavery (see previous posts about the Harpe brothers = river pirates) were also killed. That way of coping is brutal, but historically possible based upon leadership and resolve. I would encourage you to watch the Hatfield's and McCoy's special that was a three part series on the History channel. It took about 150 years for things to settle down. http://www.history.com/shows/hatfields-and-mccoys As you watch that, also realize they were very good friends to start who saved each other in wartime, but then the friendship soured. There were many times that peace was a possibility, but vengeance was foolishly chosen each time. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pLFEUKUOwo[/youtube] [/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
