[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4NjkzNTg3X0ZBM0NCNTU=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1003364:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4NjkyODgyX0NGQURDQkVD] Lets just get real. The old, the young, the obese, the sick, the mentally challenged, and the idiots will all die off rather quickly. Very few, percentage wise of the populace will survive a true scenario. Most will be dead in three months or less... [/quote] It is certainly true in that certain scenarios would could see a dramatic and scary decline in Humanity. That said, historically it hasn't happened, other than the last Ice Age. As such, it's not a persuasive way to convince people to prep. It is plausible, but not probable. I'd expect American to fare less well than poorer countries, strictly because a lack of prepping and skill sets needed. Also survival is based upon mental outlook, and given the preponderance of folks on medication for this, I'd expect a lot of people to not cope well, give up, or lose it. That couple seriously impact the survivability of anyone choosing to try to make it. Some people count on a die off, and think they'll gather up supplies. In reality, I think that those supplies will be used up, then a die off. Depending upon season and supply houses and livestock, we could have fields of grain and vegetables, but no people to harvest them. The same could happen with livestock, but an inability to feed them. The same with food warehouses, but an inability to transport it minus gasoline. Barring a major catastrophe, most of the time what happens is a slow decline, deaths from various causes, and then a readjustment period with deaths during that period. Either way, it's not a bright future, and having six months of food as a reservoir and skills and defensive capabilities will all help. [/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
