How to Talk to Friends and Family About Prepping

( – The year 2020 was a real eye-opener. It brought us a global pandemic mixed with civil unrest and a string of other strange occurrences. Whether you’re just starting with your preps or you’re a seasoned prepper, there comes a time when you need to talk to your family about prepping.

For many people, 2020 introduced them to the world of prepping. People were shown that disasters of all shapes, sizes, and severity can happen at any time and that there’s nothing crazy about being prepared.

When talking to friends and family about prepping, take it slow. Overwhelming them isn’t going to convince them to prep. It will do the opposite. Also, it’s better to keep the disasters to a local level rather than talk about larger issues like nuclear warfare and electromagnetic pulses (EMPs). Sit down and discuss the most likely disasters you face in your area and how you can prepare for them.

Use 2020 as an example, the amount of civil unrest seen was unheard of in recent history. Societal collapse is inevitable. It may not be today or anytime soon. But it will happen, and that’s something we all should prepare for ahead of time.

There is nothing wrong with preparing for the worst. Just make sure you are realistic about your preps and the skills you have. The most important thing to remember when talking to your friends and family about prepping is to never force them into prepping and remember to offer help to new preppers.

You also need to be careful who you talk to about prepping, as not everyone can be trusted. Check out how you can protect your preps using a military system known as OPSEC, or operations security.
