Survival Skills: How to Equip Your Child for Possible Future Undesirable Situations

Truly successful parents are those who teach their kids to be self-reliant.

“ Raise Self-Reliant Children. Give your children what they need to rely on themselves ”.

Jim Taylor, Ph.D. Psychology Today . 24 September 2018.

Did you know?

About 8 million kids are reported missing each year.

And about 7 million out of 38 million children aged 5-14 find themselves at home alone, quite often.

That means there’s a 39% chance your young ones may have to fend for themselves at some point.

As a caring parent, a ‘home-alone’ kid is hardly something you’d ever want. But at the same time, it’s something you can’t always avoid.

But the truth is your children will do just fine if you prepare them for such situations beforehand. How? By helping/teaching them to learn and practice SURVIVAL SKILLS!

 

While raising your child on moral values, there should also be a great need to incorporate survival skills preparation into their upbringing. 

“Helping your children develop personal skills from an early age is an essential part of preparing them for school and also lays a foundation for their independence and future success,” according to Eleanor Murphy Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology (in Psychiatry) – Columbia University, New York state (USA).

 

 

Don’t only tell your child / teen what’s right from wrong; teach them what to do and how to act in real-life situations. Teach them to be prepared for anything and everything, from hiding quietly when in danger to applying first aid.

You can’t always be at their side where they are. You may be mowing the lawn, and your child is sifting through the kitchen for food. But their sense of survival will guide them on what’s edible and what isn’t. 

Some essential survival skills that’d give you peace of mind about your child’s safety and well-being include the following:

  • Starting a fire
  • Cooking
  • Growing food
  • Staying hidden when required
  • Climbing a tree to escape predators
  • Building a shelter
  • Dialing emergency numbers
  • Checking for and detecting spoilt foods
  • Situational awareness and alertness
  • Finding their way when lost
  • Applying first aid
  • Dealing with their own mistakes
  • Handling harassment
  • Dealing with strangers and knowing when to withhold information
  • Acknowledging nature and life’s value
  • Adapting to environmental changes
  • Adapting to situational changes
  • Creating a family disaster plan
  • And so much more!

 

You see, the good news is many of these skills can be practiced while having fun e.g. at summer holiday adventure camps.

But always remember, teaching 5-8-year-olds or 9-12 year old’s and 13+ is entirely different from teaching adults.

 

Who am I  and why should you carry on reading ?

 

Hello & Welcome !

I am Alex.Tawiah, proprietor and senior administrator of BeginnerDisasterAndSurvivalPrep.com

My main motive for presenting this publication was the actions of Tilly Smith and its many positive consequences  :

Thanks to a geography lesson learned 2 weeks before the tsunami, Tilly Smith, a 10-year-old Briton, saved a hundred lives.

On December 26, 2004, Tilly was with her family on a beach in Phuket, Thailand. She suddenly notices the warning signs of the tidal wave. When the water started receding hundreds of meters, and everyone rushed in to catch dancing fishes on the beach, looked like a free-for-all …..

A carnival-like atmosphere where tourists, fishermen, kids were seen running around catching fishes, crabs, squids, you name it.

Only when a 10-year-old British kid realized what would follow—she alerted her parents, who warned others on the beach and the staff at the hotel in Phuket. “On the water, it felt like foam on the beer. It sparkled, ”she later recounted.

This girl knew that the priority in this case is to move as quickly as possible to higher ground which is now what post-December 2004 Tsunami Alert signs strongly advise :

At the time, her mother did not take her seriously and her father remained wary. “You do as you want, but I am not standing there,” she tells them with aplomb.

The father, who eventually decides to trust his daughter, warns the lifeguards who are on the beach. They then  warn swimmers of the imminent danger. Modest, Tilly would later give all the credit to her teacher who had the good idea to tell his students about the Hawaiian tsunami of 1946.

By a timely and swift action in the nick of time, she had saved a 100 lives in the tsunami that killed scores of people in Phuket and nearby resorts in Thailand and other regions in the Indian Ocean.

In fact, nearly 230,000 people died in the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, making it one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.

At the official tsunami commemorations on the first anniversary of the tsunami, held at Khao Lak, Thailand, on 26 December 2005. She was given the honour of reading a poem to thousands of spectators that included many bereaved relatives.

Today, her story is incorporated into many teaching resources for kids about Survival Knowledge & Skills related to NATURAL (and man-made) disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis AND how to stay safe.

“Tilly’s story tells us about the importance of teaching young people about natural hazards”  said Ex-US President Bill Clinton & UN tsunami envoy (2005). “I think it’s really important for all kids to know about tsunamis and other type of natural hazards”, he added.

The former US President went on to say that : “Tilly’s story tells us about the importance of teaching young people about natural hazards. “All children should be taught Disaster Reduction, so they know what to do when natural hazards strike”. Tilly’s story is a simple reminder that education can make a difference between life and death,” he concluded.

The UN’s director of international strategy for disaster reduction Salvano Briceño said it was important to the know the actions necessary to reduce the risks of natural disasters.

“Many children have learned to live with natural hazards in countries such as Japan, Cuba, Iran and Bangladesh. “Everybody should have this basic knowledge,” he added.
