21 Reasons to Become a Prepper: Most Reasons People Prep are Reasonable

21 Reasons to Become a Prepper: Most Reasons People Prep are Reasonable was a free kindle book when this post was written.

 Preppers have been cast in a negative light in the past few years. They have become thought of as crazy hoarders who are collecting weapons and thousands of cans of spam in their basement waiting for the end of the world.

There are many reasons to prep that have nothing to do with the end of the world. Many people prep in case they lose their job or a storm hit knocking out utilities for weeks.

In this book I discuss 21 reasons people prep. Many of these reasons are reasonable. Several of them are a little unlikely. A few more are unrealistic, but can help prepare you for any unforeseen trouble in the future.

Hypothermia usually occurs when the body temperature falls below normal. The causes of it could be being out in the extreme cold that is added with wet clothes and wind chill.

Symptoms of it is drowsiness, a lowered heart rate and breathing, and unconsciousness.

Treat it very carefully , if you have no way to get medical help. In an emergency situation.

The number one priority is to raise the body temperature of the person evenly and gently.

Get the person out of their wet clothing and replace it with dry clothing.

Place them in a sleeping bag in a warm area. Like, close to a campfire, etc. If you have to , get in the bag with the person so your body heat is helping raise theirs.

If you have the way to - get them in a warm bath.

If breathing stops perform CPR.

Seek medical attention as soon as possible.

4 Advantages Of Homeschooling

1. Flexible Schedule

Homeschooling enables a flexible schedule. For example, your child does not need to wake up at 7 every morning. With homeschooling, your child can start homeschooling at 9am or later depending on your preferred schedule. You can schedule your child's homeschooling education as you see fit with materials or subjects that may be not available in a traditional school.

2. Individual attention

With homeschooling, your child gets all the individual attention he/she needs. For example, if your child is weak in mathematics, you could devote more time and energy into teaching mathematics.
Your child's homeschooling schedule can be adjusted to crater for that. For example, if your child is better at science than at mathematics, simple devote more homeschooling hours to mathematics and cut back on science. With homeschooling, the choice is yours. Traditional schools can't do that.

3. Family Activity

The schooling of the child can become an extended family activity. Examples are field trips and experiments. Plus, the child also receives more quality time with his/her parents. There is more time for family bonding.

4. No peer pressure

With homeschooling, the child does not need to prove his/her abilities to other children. Parents are able to deeply understand their child better with homeschooling and therefore are able to plan the learning program according to his strengths and weakness.
