Reading on nutritional needs before hand as part of your preps and buying vitamins is far easier than trying to deal with the long road to recovery on a limited diet. A stitch in time, saves nine. http://www.thirdplanetfood.com/malnutrition.htm There are too many potential interactions with wild edibles, though many have benefits to stave off deficiencies, but since women make up half of survivors, and many might be of child-bearing years, caution must be used. I'd like to give you some advice, but it's ill advised. You should do your own research as there are many wild edible pages, but conflicting information on some of them. Many common edibles while providing scant calories, they can provide whopping doses of vitamins. However because there are many phytochemicals (perhaps thousands) in a plant, you must read read read. Stressed out people cope by making love more or less depending on the person. So unexpected pregnancies can easily occur. Remember that if the SHTF, you might easily run out of normal contraceptives, and obviously the rhythm method doesn't work unless you carefully do the mucus and the temperature test religiously. All of the Hesperian docs are free and in several languages. There are three main ones for no dentist, no doctor, and specificly for women. All good. http://hesperian.org/books-and-resources/ [/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
