I can understand wanting the kids near at hand, so you don't have to worry about them if something does happen. However, I am seriously doubtful that anyone actually can predict catastrophes accurately, unless they're actually creating those catastrophes.

i doubt there is a single day that goes by, that someone, somewhere, wasn't claiming was going to have a major catastrophe. And yet, it seems that we are never prepared when there really is a catastrohe, never quite ready for it. It always seems to come as a surprise. Why is that? Mostly because we simply don't have a good way to weed out the false alarms from the real possibilities.

At some point we each have to ask ourselves how much we're willing to hide, how frightened we are about potential disasters. We can't hide from them all, or we'd never venture out of the house (or out of our wilderness stronghold, or wherever we were hiding). And yet, when there is a credible threat, it would be foolish to ignore it and pretend nothing can ever happen. How do we decide? I wish I had a clever answer, but I don't.

I solved some of this question for myself. I just decided I was tired of running and hiding, and so I'm going out whenever I care to. But I don't have kids or a family to protect. It's just me. If I had kids or a wife, chances are good I'd want to be there with them to face whatever threats seemed likely, to do what I could to keep them safe.

I think we've each got to figure out our own solution, and then live with the results. I'd rather spend a day with my loved ones and have it turn out OK, than to send them to work or school, and have something happen. But we can't spend our whole lives hiding, either. There's got to be some balance.

IMO, don't let other people's opinions get in the way of your intuition... If I had children and I strongly felt that they shouldnt be at school on a certain day, I would rather take the chance of looking a "fool" than have my kids hurt.

There have been quite a few stories of people having gut instincts about 9/11, and those who ignored them, and we all know (only in retrospect) how that turned out.

Animals can sense things through instinct that humans cannot, so I think that if you are in tune enough with your instincts and feelings then go with it. It's something that has been "bred out" of most humans for want of a better word.

We are just trying to help her. If you start believing every thing you read on the internet to the point it is affecting you and/or your childs life in a negative way maybe you should look into that is all we are saying.

What does it say about a persons mental state when they start letting predictions from something like a webbot affect their daily life?

I just try not to give clinical advice to someone over the internet, especially someone I dont know, was all I was saying.
I'm sure your intent was good, thats why I included a smiley after my comment. I meant no harm.

Although if Goddess has some intuitive feeeling about it, I say it's not anyones business but hers
She asked if anyone else was going to keep their kids home from school, not if anyone thought it was a good idea or not.

I have a feeling your kids miss ALOT of school. It's a shame, nothings going to happen. NOTHING is going to happen.

Perhaps if you found a job you wouldnt have so much time to sit at home worrying yourself and your family, complaining about the economy, when you can be out there actually helping the economy !!! yaaaaay.

Mother Investigated by Social Services Cries - “I Kept my Kids From School Because of ATS!”



Hopefully we do NOT see this headlines here soon!


Article reads: Mother looses children for keeping them out of school over conspiracy theory site professing Oct. 26 doom and gloom.

'But, I just wanted to keep them safe!' The mother cried as her children were escorted to Social Service vans...

Social Services declines to comment on situation pending further investigation.

 

In my Opinion? Do what you want with your children, what gives you peace and makes you as a mom happy.

Just don’t advertise it all over the place, I mean come on, read recent headlines.

Social Services will take your kids for anything these days and you’re serving them up an eezy-peezy way to render you childless.

Peace and Good Luck to You and Yours and God Bless!

If you're so worried about the timewave doing a little bump, what are you going to do on dec 21 2012?

Alright people, calm down calm down!


We've gone from this being an invitation to reconsider how web forum information is to be processed without becoming over-fearful and overreacting, to the OP needing to be committed, getting a job, and having her children taken away from her.


Sheesh ... she's just trying to err on the side of caution with the most important thing in her life.

There's no need to be insulting, you know nothing of this woman even if she does not have a job that just gives her even more time to become aware of things, probably more holistically than you. I for one work and more than likely earn in one month what youl never make in your life, and I still find as much time as possible for my wife and child and we as a family look after these events to make sure we dont get caught in the flames. Do not judge people little fella it will just come back to eat your face one day.

Damn, was lurking and this caught my eye..Logged in just to reply.
Tomorrow my kids will attend school. As they will everyday after that.
No matter what I read here, or see in the newspapers or on TV, or whatever prediction is thrown into the ring...HISTORY DICTATES THAT WHEN AN EVENT HAPPENS, THERE IS NO WARNING.
Living in fear will only negatively impact your life.
That being said..plan for the worst, ALWAYS. But live your best.
I'm afraid that your kids will learn to manipulate you for days off school, and I'm also afraid that they will come to view this fear as normal, and will begin to become neurotic about the world.
We all mean well when it comes to the safety of our children, but they cannot stop living due to fear. Teach your children to act in spite of it.
You said you plan bug out scenarios? Have you done one from the school yet?
Perhaps you should, even for a natural disaster scenario. But keep it real, and as non-traumatic as possible.
I understand..I really do, that you are scared . But fear paralyzes, and by keeping him home..your are paralyzing both of you.

If she were more aware than I she would know there is no reason to keep her kids home.

My post was a little harsh, but I do not judge, only observe and reflect. Why dont we ask her ??

Not that it really matters OP, but are you currently employed ??

If you truly observed and reflected you would have seen that she works from home.But that means nothing..
Are you a person who judges others based on occupation or lack of it?
If you are, that is sad..especially in this economy where some of the most intelligent hard working people are now unemployed. Your career does not necessarily dictate your beliefs either.

I think in the grand scheme of things, what the @#$@#$.
Granted, all the predictions are probably going to turn out to be bogus and we are all going to be laughing and pointing fingers tuesday, BUT in the off chance that any of all of this is right.. what can it hurt.
In the span of a life time what is one day missed from school , not realy that big of a deal.
My lil one is to young to be in school, but with everything that has gone on in the past few days and all the threads and predictions, (not that i put much stock in the predictions, seen to many pass by with nothing) I would keep him home.

Never live life with a 'what if' live life to its fullest.

Sure, tuesday rolls around and nothing unusual, life as normal, your lil one gets a extra day off, all is good... but in the off chance, (farr off chance) that any predictions are true tomarrow, i would rather play on the safe side.
I will be going to work as usual, but i know i can get to my family if needed, by what ever means nessecary. ?sp?
But a lil one can not make it home to you.

I'd say enjoy the day, play, visit, hug them, and if nothing happens, well you just got a day of one on one time that most of us didnt.
Enjoy

I have two kids and they're both attending school tomorrow. I have been a member of ATS since 2004 and if I had kept my kids home from school based on every bogus doom and gloom prediction I have read on here ever since then, they wouldn't have had an education in five years.

That being said, I'm keeping them home Dec. 21, 2012.

Listen up! When I went to school I walked ten miles thru snow covered fields, (even in summer school) in shoes with holes in them. I still went everyday and I was thankful that I had a school to go to, no buses needed.
What do kids go to school for? To learn .If the Pooh hits the palm leaf
what better way for them to develop some survival instincts.
I'm sending mine and if their not home with their chores and homework done by the time I get home from work then their all grounded.

Kids just have it way to easy nowa days. (Spits large tobaco goober in spitoon)

One day home from school with a loving family is a treasure. All the education in the world can not top time spent together. I dont know that I would tell my kids why they were home other than we need this day together. I dont understand why poster are being so harsh. Its obvious this mother loves her family dearly and wants to protect them. If my kids were not adults we would be right here at home tomorrow baking cookies and watching movies and being silly.

"I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad would kill us, and dance about on our graves singing 'Hallelujah.'" *

So...being a regular ATSer I have read all these different predictions and prophesys warning about something BIG & NASTY happening on next Monday.

I listen to C2C also and have heard plenty of dire warnings about the same date.

I do not particularly subscribe to ANY of these doom & gloom predictions, but....WHAT IF something does go down?
Just WHAT IF?

I do not want my kid to be across town at school IF something goes on (IE Martial law/earthquake/Yellowstone blows).....and then I am scrambling to locate him and get on with whatever we need to do to survive.
SOOOOO I am going to keep him home from school on Monday.
~~JUST IN CASE~~

Missing one day won't hurt much in the big scheme of things educationally IMO......and I believe it would be far better to have him close from the get go then to have to worry about how to fetch him home if something terrible goes wrong.

Anybody else thinking along these lines?

I mean...we ARE ATSers afterall, and some others here may also think they way I do.
