[quote:Anonymous Coward 1496915:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI2NDAyNjcyXzUyNEM0MjBF] Slingshots The easiest means of hunting and fairly precise with common ammunition is the Slingshot. You will be surprised as they are perfectly legal, cheap to purchase, available at any Wallyworld, and require not special skill. Children can be put to work, and can take down a lot of game in a short amount of time. Slingshots break, but usually from abuse or from heat (very likely) from eventual dry rot (somewhat likely). Mine lasted for a long time. It is wise to get backups and spare slingshots sections, and not hard to replace the band/leather section. There are many videos which detail ways to improve the slingshot. Mostly the issues are with recoil and the flapping of the surgical tube on the skin. Jörg Sprave makes a lot of very interesting and powerful slingshots. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZypZVxpyMM[/youtube] Long before the Discovery Channel hosted Dual Survival, Dave Canterbury created a youtube channel with very excellent survival videos. He has a very specially modified slingshot to fire arrows to hunt large game. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NshtEe_TsRA&feature=relmfu[/youtube] I highly recommend these channels. It could mean feeding your family. The better slingshots that fire arrows will utilize a whisker bit. This makes the arrow rest very well and still, and allows for a smooth release. Dave has one video on making that style. As anyone who's fired a lot of arrows can attest, the arrow fletching, which are the feathers or plastic pieces which help it spin (usually in threes) will often come off under heavy usage. One will be different, called the index fletch, and that one is generally the one that is horizontal with the ground when nocked. [/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
