[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4ODE1MjE5XzEzODczRUYz] Reticence to lift a finger to help themselves Lately, I've been reading a lot of you post responses that it's silly to prepare, that if things get bad then the nukes will start flying, that I don't want to live without electricity and running water, that I'm ready to go home to Heaven, that I don't have enough money to prepare, etc. I think I've talked about every one of those things here. Well, no one can make you prepare, but don't expect that the government will come bail you out, or that your neighbors who did prepare should feed your children, or that when at the last minute you decide that you do want to live that you can come take what I've carefully prepared. I'm incredulous at times how weak we've become. Our ancestors would be ashamed. In some cultures, they talk to their ancestors. Westerners do too, they might visit their grave sites, and while praying in Church, or on Christmas sitting by the tree remember and even talk silently to their Grandma or a favorite old uncle. Think about doing that. Imagine a conversation with them discussing why you feel like you can't prepare. What do you think would be their response? I'll bet a lot of them would laugh at you, if they were good natured. Some would just shake their heads in disbelief that they didn't teach you any better than that. Some of them might actually be angry and tell you to grow up. Few of your ancestors who struggled and saved every little scrap during the Depression to recycle way before it was cool, would just be wide-eyed to see the incredible luxury in our homes: the vast diversity of our food, the time saving devices, the incredible wealth of things that they would never have had during the 1930's. And despite all of those things, we've become weak, ineffectual, and lazy. It's really tragic and I just am dumbfounded to respond any more to those kinds of replies. If you're one of those kinds of people who just refuses to prepare, and especially if you might have someone that you'll be a caregiver too, like an aging parent or a grandchild, then I urge you to do some independent research and watch some documentaries about life during the Depression. Don't believe me because I've written so much, be a good critical thinker. Don't believe me and then do nothing. Watch those early movie reels and see how people starved and struggled to make it.

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
