Letter Re: Dealing with Troubled Teens in a Post-Collapse World


In response to the question “Let them in or not?” in “Dealing with Troubled Teens in a Post-Collapse World- Part 1”, do yourself a favor and answer “NO!” to that question. Dealing with a “troubled teen” when the child is your own is one thing. Voluntarily inviting that kind of volatility into an already bad situation is sheer insanity! Not only will the child not listen to you, you run the risk of an “authority conflict” between you and the child’s parents. This will affect everyone under your roof and could spell disaster for all. Reaching out to others in a SHTF scenario is all well and good. Sometimes though, you have to close the watertight door in order to save the ship, even if someone you love is on the wrong side of it. – PH
