Teaching your children an emergency plan
« on: April 19, 2010, 01:02:40 PM »

This link helps with teaching your children emergency plans.  I don't have small children, but it still is a way to present to your adult children as well that they need to be prepared.

We have a plan....(the twins are now 8 and the oldest 13) and we go through it periodically. But we all know it's said: Wanna hear God laugh, tell Him "your" plans!   Come what may, we're going HOME either which way, amen?  :)

Also making a sort of game out of it, practicing the plan over several times, and having them draw or color pictures about the plan and even making a cute poster for the refrigerator are all good ways to help them remember what to do.  Remember all the drills in school where we lined up and marched outside?  And the practice of crawling under our desks?  I can remember when we had the Cuban crisis, I was a young adult and I was pretty frightened about possibly being bombed by Castro. (I lived in California at the time)  So it is important to educate, but to do it in a manner that does not overly frighten youngsters.

Really good ideas, Endtimesgal!
I remember the Cuban missile crisis vividly. I was going to a community college at the time, also in California...

I would like to bump this as I feel that it is essential to revisit!!

Some additional suggestions:

Talk with your little ones about meeting places (even within the home) in the event of an emergency. If you live in a multilevel home, think of access to the nearest exit (ie. does the basement have a cellar door?)

Keep tabs on your bugout bags- don't forget an activity book w/pencil, a duplicate of their favorite stuffy, pack of playing cards! 

This is not a bad time to include a whistle to their wardrobe, either pinned to their clothing or wear as a necklace. In fact, this may not be a bad idea for all family members.

**This is important** start weening them from the electronics- NOW! Start slowly with a "no screen time Saturday" and work your way up, make it as if it were a fun challenge and reward them (with something like a movie of their choice night, or a dinner of their choice night.)

Hope this helps!

Let's keep the list going- what would you add?

When we get past the busy planting season, I'd like to spend some time exploring the many amazing low-tech board games that have come out since the old days of just Monopoly, Battleship, Clue, etc.  They might make good Christmas or birthday gifts.  Somewhere Soc had begun a list of games worth collecting, and perhaps we should dig that thread back up too!  :)

Absolutely! I think that is a great idea, I think there are some old fashioned game shops still left around where I live that I may check out :D
