[quote:Anonymous Coward 1496915:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI2NDA1ODI5XzJGQTA3QTcw] Videos on Fire Starting that make me frustrated [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71JenswS9kg[/youtube] I like the scientific method. The issue is that the baseboard for the bow drill are made wrong. The notch should be cut so that a coal forms http://www.bushcraft.ridgeonnet.com/images/bowdrilltut/basic%20setup.jpg See the cut in the baseboard or what they're calling a hearth board. The tinder is placed immediately underneath the baseboard, and as the coal forms, it falls on the tinder, and you gingerly cup the tinder to get enough air to it, and blow it into flame. I rarely see this done correctly. Question? Who knows a good way to make a durable and historically accurate bow drill rope? I don't, and I've been looking. Most plant ropes of that diameter break under that kind of use. I've never made one that was historically accurate, and would like to. [/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
