Prepping with Kids

My experience tells me that kids are more capable of adopting a prepper’s lifestyle than many of their adult counterparts. It’s fun, it engages their imagination, and they don’t yet have to worry about being self-conscious as their non-prepping friends and colleagues make fun of them or think they are crazy. Kids are resilient and able to learn fast without always second-guessing everything they hear. The point here is that kids can be taught important prepping skills without even knowing that they are getting schooled, but it needs to be an engaging and relevant activity that you lead.

One huge skill set that has escaped the majority of the population is how to live in the outdoors. Camping to the modern family usually involves taking a RV or trailer to a site that’s equipped with all of the amenities of home. A trip to the woods may involve a cabin that includes central heat and a hot tub. Very few families out there in the general population go off into the boonies and set up camp in the traditional sense of the word.

Keep things fun.

As a teacher, I’m constantly looking for new ways to engage students so they will take the initiative and lead as they learn. I’m convinced that making things fun goes a long way when it comes to how easily and how long a student retains something.

It’s never too early to start passing on the knowledge that you have to your kids. It’s never too late to learn new tricks as you teach them as well. Making prepping part of the family DNA is not that difficult if you make the practice and learning enjoyable and rewarding.
