Our children are our future. It is our natural instinct to protect them from the dangers of the world. But as adults, we also have a tendency to want to shield them from the things we feel that they’re not ready to learn.

It is our duty to provide them with the necessary tools to survive. Once SHTF, there’s no telling what will happen.

You might not be around to teach them at that point, and you’ll be comforted to know that they will be all right.

Children need to learn self-sufficiency to grow into successful, well-adjusted adults. Here are 15 skills a child needs to master before that SHTF moment comes along.
