Friends, Family… Meet Prepping

Friends, Family… Meet Prepping

If the rollercoaster year of 2020 taught us anything, it’s that people who prep aren’t as crazy as they’re made out to be. The idea of prepping can be easily misinterpreted, and introducing it to your family and friends can be difficult. Talking to them about prepping needs to be done with care. Here’s how.

The first element to remember when introducing your family and friends to the world of prepping is to do so gradually. If you overwhelm them with ideas and facts about prepping, they’re less likely to take to the idea.

In the beginning, it’s probably best to avoid talking about national or global disasters such as nuclear warfare or an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack. Keep it at a local level; discuss what possible disasters you face and how you can get ready for them.

Explain to your family and friends why you prepare and why they should as well. 2020 gave plenty of examples as to why everyone should become a prepper: civil unrest, a global pandemic and even borderline martial law.

Children should be involved as well. After all, you have to teach them young. Check out how you can teach your kids important survival skills.
