[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4ODA1NDUxXzQwREQyNkM3] Because of concern over medical contagion in the last five or so years, many laws have been quietly passed to deal with a national emergency. If you do a google search, you'll discover than there are comprehensive plans on controlling critical infrastructure during those kinds of event. Just look for contingency and critical infrastructure and pandemic. It applies to all national emergencies, so an intelligent person doing a minimal amount of research, could determine the operating plans of their area. Risk assessments were done in cities of any significant size. This means that your civic leaders know the potential ways of dealing with a national emergency and what they might have to do to control it. This is no panacea since any plan is contingent upon being able to control these personnel, usually subdivided into multiple tiers based upon their importance. There are some on there that you most likely haven't consider. Morticians for example. Food distribution. Ham radio operators. It would be wise to look through that material as it details projections based upon a lack of workers and supply chains and security. All very appropriate information to consider for bugging in or out. Of course, most of my discussion has dealt with an economic collapse, not contagion, but most of the material deals with similar issues. I feel genuine sympathy for many of you who live in these cities. You have a lot of tough decisions. [/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
