Mother of One.
Hey guys. I was hoping we could all share some tips about how we prep for our children, or help them to get into prepping.
Hi Penny, this is a great concern for me, also.Hey guys. I was hoping we could all share some tips about how we prep for our children, or help them to get into prepping.
Actually I think sometimes kids are actually more intune because they are not distracted by day to day bs (job, bills, housework etc). My 6 yo asked my why the geese were leaving early this year and lo and behold they are heading out about 6 weeks early. Meaning harsh weather this winter for us. I also taught her to cloud read and her morning job is to check and predict the weather so she wear appropriate clothing to school...and kid you not she does better than the local weather man!All of my children are grown but I have a 10 year old granddaughter. Papa regularly takes her hunting. She has her own gun it's a 22 called a Cricket. She took the gun safety course and knows how to shoot and clean it.
She's learning to cook from scratch, sew, garden and other assorted home crafts.
We discuss everything in front of her regarding the political and economic atmosphere. She engages in discussions and we answer all of her questions. We include lots and lots of discussions on the Constitution. She knows and understands to a degree what is happening in our country, and understands that's why we have a garden and chickens and why we put up food.
Children understand much more than we give them credit for sometimes.
Better yet, go with Freecycle in your area. You can get some really great clothes for free. Save all your old stuff. Box each size/seaon/gender together for the next babies.Hi Penny, You mentioned buying clothes for future use. As clothes for kids can be expensive, try yard sales and Goodwill for the extra.
