Teaching Your Kids to Prep: Resources

8:04 PM

One of the most valuable gifts you can give your children is knowledge. Teach them how to prep, why they should prep, and what it takes to prep. Teach them to budget for prepping and to carve out time in their schedules to learn new skills. Teach them how to know when a storm is coming and how to handle it if they're caught unprepared. Teach them what you know so that someday, when you're gone, they'll be able to survive.

Here are several resources you can use to help your kids learn how to prepare for storms and emergencies. Remember that as with any new skill, prepping takes time and practice. The more resources you can utilize to teach your kids, the better off you'll be.

Prepping With Kids (The Prepper Life Book 5) - This is a book I wrote last year on prepping with kids. It includes ideas for helping your children learn to prep, as well as information on specific things you need to consider when you have children.

Ready.gov - The Ready.gov site has a lot of information for both kids and adults, but their kids section is pretty fun to explore. Your children can select their state from a map and find out about recent disasters in your area.

House of Blog - Check out this post, as well as other parenting blogs, for information on prepping with kids. Read the post with your littles. Ask them what they think about the information presented and if they have any more ideas they would add. You might be surprised at how creative your kids are when it comes to prepping!

It's also a good idea to consider taking a first aid course with your kids. You can find these offered by the American Red Cross in your area, as well as at community colleges and community centers. You and your child will learn basic survival first aid, which could save your life - and theirs - during an emergency.
