Aukxsona: While your experience was a challenge it will also pay dividends in the future. My wife and I were traveling when we got hit by a major storm at home. Our 16 year old daughter who always rolled her eyes when I talked about prepping, was stuck home alone without power.
When she was able to get through to us, standing in the middle of the road to get cell reception she told us that she was fine and how she was taking care of things. Couldn’t have been prouder. And after that, no more eye rolling. So your children will be well prepared for life’s challenges, thanks to your efforts. Even if they go out of their way to pretend they are not listening or learning.
