[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NjQ2OTU4X0U3RUMwRjg0] Martial arts and prepping Some Christians don't like the martial arts. Some think that it's about some esoteric Eastern black magic and so not anything that a Christian should do. Hmmm, but then they allow their kids to box or wrestle which is based upon Greco-Roman cultures that were polytheistic and pagan and had mystery cults. Hmmmm? The reality is there's almost no religion in the marital arts other than vague references to mythological origins or merely that some of the proponents had Buddhist backgrounds. It would be as ridiculous to bad mouth wrestling for the same reasons. Other Christians are very passive and don't like violence. They think we're to turn the other cheek, but then I don't see them doing that in real life. Even if their interpretation is about being a pacifist, that's at odds with Jesus telling his disciples to carry a sword (Luke 22:36-38 ). He even told them that it was something they should do, but not to have too many. Most martial arts are about bettering physical strength and stamina and defense, so even these critics should probably reconsider their positions. If you're like either of these groups and prep, then I guess you're also like the Amish or Mennonites. They're great people, knowledgeable, but frequently abused by others since they won't protect themselves. Good luck to you if there's a collapse. If you're of some other religion or don't believe in a religion at all, it matters not for the purposes of the martial arts and prepping. To me, it's just a skill. [b]It's about learning that we mostly defeat ourselves because we don't stay calm and focused and energized by activity.[/b] It's a lot like learning how to sharpen a tool, for that's what you're really doing, is honing your spirit and fierceness. You might practically use your ability to protect yourself once in your lifetime. You might practically use your skill and discipline [b]every minute to make yourself a better person.[/b] It depends upon what happens to you and understanding what you're preparing for. It will make you more aware of your limitations and notice your surroundings. It will increase your response time. It will increase your confidence, but it's no panacea. Some are sports. Some are ways or a path to living. Others are brutally effective ways to maim and kill. Whatever you chose, it has to be for your own reasons. Regardless it's as much a part of prepping as shooting a gun. Since you may run out of bullets eventually, and since most combat become hand-to-hand at very close range, one can't ignore learning it.

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
