Teaching Kids The Prepper Mindset
Teaching your kids to be able to take care of themselves using the resources around them is invaluable. A prepper mindset is something that has to be learned. While most of the modern world considers this to be getting a job and paying bills, preppers and homesteaders tend to look at it much differently. Preppers are left wondering how to teach it to their children who are immersed in the modern world. It can be very challenging to bridge the gap between preparedness and video games, instant everything, and disposable everything.
There is more information out there targeting parents specifically about teaching your kid the skills and helping them see the larger picture. Recently though, there was something written by a 16 year old girl that explains things from her perspective. She admits that she didn’t realize how much she really knew and understood about how all the steps played together to form a cohesive survival plan.
The more she wrote, the more she also realized that absolutely none of her friends had any sort of clue about taking care of themselves without the modern conveniences they were used to. It’s highly encouraging for parents to read because it clearly shows how this girl in a prepper family suddenly ‘gets it’ and is incredibly grateful. Click the link below!
