[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NjE4NDAzXzJEQUU0OTU5] The Shaman as Confidant Believe of not, we've always had psychiatrists in tribal culture. A medicine man or shaman might be the only confidant of a chief, because they couldn't chance close friendships because it showed favoritism. It was natural for the shaman to be included in decisions, and so the shaman and chief talking was the most natural aspect of councils. While there, they'd ask the chief about what was going on in their lives, how their family was doing, and doing a physical assessment of their body, hair, nails, hands, coloring to see if they were healthy. A leader can wear themselves out, and may not have even the minimal chance to blow off steam or relax. A leader is always being judged. This means they need someone to listen to them MORE than the other tribe members. People forget about them, because they assume the chief has benefits. I assure you that leaders have it rougher much of the time. This same technique is used not only teach skills as a shaman, but also assess how those tribe members are doing with their thoughts and the ones close to them. There will be many conflicts from all the stress. The shaman has to be a peace-maker, for that task helps all of the other things that he/she is doing. Conflict is healthy. Avoiding it isn't. That causes ulcers. Naked conflict without a cause or healthy intention of solving issues is arguing. Arguing is never healthy. It makes others infected with it, and makes people sick. Your humor, good-nature, calmness, hard work, beneficence, impresses people. It allows you to say things or even to get away with doing things to improve the community. Many people will let you slide because they assume you know what you're doing. Maybe you do, maybe you don't. You have to challenge your own actions by looking in the mirror. You don't have your own confidant, not unless you have a good spouse. I hope you do. A lot of people have no idea how to be a spouse, a parent, a child, a leader, a follower, etc. You model good behavior so you stay above reproach. You need to be trustworthy so that people will listen to you. They'll watch what you do, and you might be able to persuade them what they need to do. The best convincing is by seeing not saying. Find some way for them to see the Truth, and they will end up communicating the Truth with their own words. This is better than hours (maybe days) of advice from your mouth. [/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
