2. Familiarize your children with the tools. You may find it hard to imagine your child peeling a carrot, but there is much more they can do. We believe that children should, from an early age, have a basic knowledge of certain tools that can help them survive or even defend themselves one day. Our young children are introduced to bow and arrow at age 2 (with strong supervision) and age 4 (with more independence) – not because the CIA uses archery in covert operations, but rather with the aim of making our children well balanced. and prepared. At these ages, we introduced the bow and arrow as a tool that can be used for survival, that is, for hunting for food if necessary, and also for sport. We teach our kids about pocket knife safety and introduce them to rounded tip pocket knives. When they are 5 years old each, my husband teaches them how to cut wood with these knives. He started with sticks so they could roast marshmallows and hot dogs over a campfire. These skills are also good for cooking utensils and cooking. Toss the young on the safety of the knives, peel the carrots, using a stove. They can do it.
