With most of the country shut down, you’re more than likely sharing space with a young person who is used to going 90 mph. It’s hard to come to a sudden stop as an adult, so you know it’s got to be hard on children.
I’ve found a few things that you might consider adding to your prepper pantry to help alleviate their boredom and/or fears.
