What to Tell the Kids
« on: March 19, 2012, 01:10:28 PM »
Preparedness for Kids | Shooting Illustrated
There are the, for lack of a better word, glamorous aspects to preparedness. You know, killing zombies, helping Will Smith stop an alien invasion or getting your “Red Dawn” on. But preparedness has a less sexy side, and that is bad weather or general mayhem. Recently, we were prepared to weather a storm that turned out to be for naught, but it was comforting to be ready. And the kids got to play along.

If you have to bug out, your kids will too. As an added bonus, they also can help carry stuff. Not as much as mom and dad, but they should be able to provide some help. And, if you’re like me, you kind of like having them around.

The first thing you do is talk to them about why. Don’t bombard them with doom and gloom scenarios—make it fun.
Some pretty good stuff here.

Have you tried any of these suggestions with your kids?  How did that work out?  If not, what did work out?
