As a 12-year homeschooling mom, I have some thoughts and ideas to share with others concerning children and the area of preparedness. I realize that many readers of Survival Blog may have already raised their family and would instinctively pass by this article. But are any of you grandparents, aunts, uncles, or neighbors of younger children? I recently spent the day with a curious youngster who asked many questions of “how” and “why” I was doing things throughout the day. It occurred to me what an opportunity it was to engage a young mind and body into the everyday life of a prepper.
