[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0OTE4OTUzX0E5NTc5QzlB] Staying calm when all around you seem to be losing it We're approaching a seasonally rough period with Christmas right around the corner, as well as the hyped Mayan 2012 business, Nibiru, etc. You need to be taking good care of yourselves, doing something that energizes but also relaxes you. A lot of people may end up needing your help in the days to come; hopefully not, but it's within the realm of possibility. Find things that center you. Everyone needs something greater than themselves. It might be a cause or spirituality. Do what works best for you. Find some quiet time to reflect as well as finish up your planning. Try to wake up 30 minutes early as witness a sunrise, or pay special attention to a sunset. Light some candles to make family time more special. Do things that build you up. If we have some event, particularly at Christmas and with the Winter, then a lot of people will be especially stressed out. They'll react in a wild manner. You on the other hand will be calm and respond appropriately. Clear headed people are needed most during an emergency when everyone else is running around like chickens who just had their heads cut off. Don't be infected by their bizarre reactions. If you do have to respond with strength, don't waste a lot of time trying to convince people, but be decisive. Actions speak louder than words. Imagine what they need, and respond to that need, not to what they are saying. We are a tribal people at heart, who have altered our natural inclinations of building warm fire with firewood we chopped and raising animals and crops, and become shadows of what we could be. It causes an existential crisis in humanity, and when stressed, that warrior spirit exerts itself for dominance. Be a soldier instead: trained, disciplined, calm, focused. [/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
