I am the father of 3 girls, 8 ,10 &13 . I do not put fear in there minds only preparedness . I don't rant about the end of the world by means of
comet , nukes or alien invasion ( though we do talk about the possibility of alien life because its fun to think about !) They are smart girls whom
love the outdoors , information and sports.
I wonder if some world changing event does happen , how my parenting will adapt as well as their lives.
With the idea that electricity , cell phones, TV and air conditioning among others could possibly be no more, how will that transfer into a different
way of living go down. I realize here in America we are a bit spoiled and there are many nations out there whom live with none of these privileges.
But to go from having all these things to not will be hard I would think.
Its fun to camping and go the wilderness for a week or two during the summer or hunting during the winter, we all love this. However its always nice
to jump in the truck and head home to a hot shower and air-conditioned room full off toys and gadgets !! I just hope that if I am forced to be the one
to guide them as well as my self and wife through this that I can do it well. I hope I can instill in them the will to push forward for life itself
and to pass on knowledge to there children.
What a big task at hand or us or them or whom ever. I pray I nor my children will be in this role but I hope whom ever is in it does it justice.
