Is it wrong that I`m prepping my kids for the apocalypse?

Danika Asked: Is it wrong that I`m prepping my kids for the apocalypse?

Okay, so my husband and I believe that the world is coming to an end. Nuclear bombs, global warming, we`re running out of water, there`s less farm-grown food, etc. It just seems, feels, like it could end- and soon. I`m absolutely positive that there won`t be grandparents around for much longer. I give the world 100 years, max. And I think it could end by, eh, 2015. Well, not end. But apocalypse, sure.

So, my husband and I have been raising our kids, who are seven, four, and two, to survive. Kayla is the oldest, Zach is the middle one, and Lynette is that baby.

Kayla and Zach can both hunt to an extent, Kayla can make soup out of things she finds in the wild(EDIBLE soup, all the kids know how to recognize poisons, I`m even teaching Lynette the basic concept), and Zach is starting to catch on. They`re all in martial arts(karate and kick-boxing, I wasn't sure what they needed most), and I`m teaching Zach to read, write, and count before kindergarten. Kayla can already do a lot of survival things, like make a fire with sticks and rocks, track things, and recognize a lot of animals.

We stockpile canned good, oatmeal, rice, anything that will stay good. We have a bomb shelter in our basement, as well as a house out on the woods. A safe house, in case anything should happen.

We also spend a lot of our money on gold and jewels, because money is just paper, and can loose it`s value. Jewels will ALWAYS be worth SOMETHING.

But lately I`ve been thinking- I`m not really letting my kids be kids. They aren't allowed to use TV, and while we own a computer, we rarely use it. This is my first time ever asking a question online. They do not go to school, we spend all our time prepping them. My two year old can put on a gas mask in under thirty seconds! A GAS MASK.

I want them to enjoy their childhood, but I also want them to survive. I do NOT know what I should do.

P.S.- I`m not joking. Whenever I tell anyone what I do, they assume I`m kidding. Or crazy. I just like to think ahead.

Zorro Answered:
if the whole world goes down the toliet would you really want to be running around in the woods searching for food or whatever… Screw that

"I know what your thinking, why oh why didn't I take the blue pill"

YOU'RE RIGHT that is exactly what I was thinking this place sucks monkey butt.



The Natural Mommy Answered:
If you are serious about being a survivor you need to stock pile SEEDS!!!



Selar Answered:
Um, sure no.I should teach my kids that.Then they can go forge for food instead of us spending money to buy it….



The Sumptuous Simian Answered:
That is probably the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard of! Why are you prepping for the end of the world, when you could just be living for the day?

Also, you are gonna feel pretty stupid when the time comes around and the world is still existing. The world didn't end in 2000, did it?



Fashionista Answered:
You say the world has 100 years…. it's highly unlikely your kids will be alive in 100 years.



Bebe Answered:
Being prepared is one thing, and teaching your kids harmful habits like paranoia is another. If you want them to enjoy their childhood, let them enjoy it like children should and not make them afraid of the world. Sure the world may be coming to an end, and there are a lot of horrific things about this world. But there are still amazing and beautiful parts of life…something your kids won't see if they're putting on gas masks and being sucked into your ridiculousness.

When I was little, I thought the Russians were watching me do EVERYTHING.I thought they had cameras everywhere.Even in the bathroom.One day I realized my dad was batshit crazy.



Traxus IV Answered:
No, there's nothing wrong with that.

Me and My daughter did a Nuclear attack drill yesterday, I told her, that if anything happens to daddy, know that I love her, and to never give into the system.

We have a vault of seeds and other trinkets for trading when the SHTF happens, and of course, we have a whole arsenal high calibre rifles in the garage.

We even put a freezer in the ground, 'an called it our little bunker.

I think that a post-apocolyptic world would be a must fascinating place to live in, so I'm ready.



Forget Super Ultimate Mom Answered:
I am above the apocalypse. The rapture on the other hand…



Rocket Man Answered:
If the world was really, really going to end, and there was nothing you could do about it…. what exactly are you storing all this food for? What good would all that training do…. if everything is over?



Slyvia Answered:
You are crazy. The world is not coming to an end imminently. I don't see how you could possibly not be a troll. Kids have to go to school and if you are legit not going to send your kids to school (which I'm pretty sure is against the law) then what the hell are they going to do when the world does not end besides be paranoid hermits?
