A Kit For Responsible Children
« on: August 27, 2013, 06:33:37 PM »
A kit for responsible children

Separate bag inside a Kevlar lined backpack

Laminated ID w/picture, name, home address, telephone number, alternate address and telephone number of close relative with their pictures and names.

Another laminated card w/home address and telephone number and parents cell phone numbers

List of safe houses if parents arenít available with names, addresses and telephone numbers. Telephone number of a taxi service that is trusted.

City map with home and relativesí addresses marked, along with the list of safe houses.

A small coin purse with a ten dollar bill, a five dollar bill, five ones, plus coins. (Money primarily for paying for a taxi. Including a signed note that offered a reward to get the bearer safely to one of the addresses on the laminated cards. The change is primarily for vending machines or pay phone (If any still exist)

Prepaid cell phone if the school allows.

Telephone card (Use at least once a month under supervision so the child knows how)

2 boxes juice, packet of trail mix, packet of jerky, hard candies.

2 small bottles of water

Windup LED flashlight

Space blanket & disposable poncho

Change of underwear, knit cap, pair of warm gloves in vacuum sealed bag

Camperís pack of toilet tissue

Individual moist towelettes

One-ounce bottle of Purell for sanitation if regular bathroom facilities arenít available

Couple of band-aids and two larger patch bandages

Over-the-counter medications (only if allowed by school)

Packet of tissues for runny noses

Whistle and signal mirror

Dust mask and swimming goggles for dust, smoke, or fumes

Bicycle helmet for protection in tornados, earthquakes, etc.

Lighter and pocket knife if allowed by school (used monthly to keep in practice)

Memorize three code words. One to use to indicate it is the parentís instructions, by them or trusted family and friends to give or receive information or be picked up. A second word that means to keep doing whatever it is you are doing, primarily meaning stay where you are. A third word to mean to follow the Get Home Plan.

Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

I saw that image and felt ill. I searched it right away and apparently it is not a book (yet supposedly). If this becomes a book it needs to be burned.

Yes,
sometimes the attempt at humour takes away from the thread. Forum stuff, just like all forums.
OP Jerry, do you want the image/book removed?

Taxi gift cert
buss tokens/tickets
gift cards for restaurants, eg. McDonalds (worked with my Ex's daughter very well)
trusted relatives phone numbers and addresses

all sealed in a pouch to be only opened in an emergency.


A small reading book to keep their attention off of the situation to amuse them while they wait

Might as well leave it. Will give parents something to think about. They might have to explain it some day to their kids.

Just my opinion.

ROFL @ M5. NICE!

Oh and as for the reason this post was done, I thank you very much since there is some things in there that I haven't even thought of.  Love it!

Back to the thread, practice, rehearsals are important for kids. Make them react automatically to threatening situations, and they"ll increase their chances of coming through alive.

Just a thought to ponder

I quite agree. Start by having them practice your family fire drill at least once a month. It may seem too frequent but they soon get used to it and should, heaven forbid, a fire occur they know exactly what to do.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Get your kids outside in bad weather as well as good.  Hike them to the end of the road in a blizzard, so that they understand how different things look and how their body's react.  Get them outside in a rainstorm - let them play in it.  Splash about. Learn what stays dry.  If we only ever take them out when the weather is good, how will they know how to cope if you have bug out when the weather is bad.  And there is nothing, absolutely nothing that adds to stress levels like whiny unhappy kids.

Remember to keep clear the line between sheep and sheeple!

how about a code word for when things AINT RITE. ie.. trouble.
kids can go looking for help and get just the opposite.
something like
"yes uncle charlie I am fine"
uncle charlie being, the neighbourhood perv, who took kids.
of all the things I,ve lost.. I miss my mind, the most
