Age Specific Issues For Preppers

Are you too old to prep? Are your kids too young to be included in your prepping plans?

Before we answer this question let’s consider that maybe it’s better to think of preparedness as a multi-generational journey…the Matriarch or Patriarch takes the lead until they can’t anymore and then they pass the preparedness leadership (Chain of Command) on to the next generation.  Preparedness efforts are most effective when they are group, especially family efforts.

This same concept applies if you are new to preparedness.  If you are unable to lead your family’s efforts due to age or circumstance… hold a family meeting and choose another to lead the efforts… then help your family and the preparedness leader in every way you can.  To return to our ‘journey’ metaphor…you may no longer be driving the bus, but you are along for the ride and can contribute immeasurably to your family’s preparedness in other ways.


Seasoned citizen preppers have a lifetime of resources available to help your family’s efforts.  Consider your resources and contribute appropriately. 

Children do not have to be a burden upon your family in the event of a Collapse Event. But your preparedness plan must allow for the extra preps necessary for their care. Don't forget their education. Download a copy of this excellent work by Todd Sepulveda of

When it comes to raising your children as preppers consider this:

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6
