Lately with all the natural disastors occuring and wars that are on going and then recently watching a History channel movie about life after an armagedon type situations I started thinking about our childrens education. I have my oldest son in the cubscouts, and think it is a great starting point. But I also believe that in school, another class should be mandatory… they should call it “Raw Survival”. It should teach children/teens how to sterilize found water and what insects and reptiles are eatable and what plants are toxic and what are safe and which ones have healing remedies. Some farming skills and outdoor saftey survival skills (with no tent, and no supplies.)
Basically a class that each year would teach a laundry list of skills that would teach our future generation to survive if the world they know were to vanish. Kids today have less and less survival skills and more and more computer and video game skills. But what if the electricity went out then what???
I’m curious what others think about this idea?
