    Books are a wonderful diversion for kids. That is why I wrote my series of children's books.

    If I were stuck with a screaming kid, I would just sit them down with my first best-seller: "Daddy Drinks Because You Cry". I expect that would keep them well sorted out.

    This very thought has crossed my mind. My step daughter has Downs syndrome and mild autism. Keeping her quiet at times is hard. She is very smart though and I believe she would understand when there was danger. It is something I'll have to continue working with her on. It does worry me though because when we play hide 'n seek and I say "where are you" I'll hear a little voice from the closest say "here I am".

    As to the point someone made about leaving them behind, never going to happen. If she became a detriment to a group I was in I would tell them to go on without us. I'd give my last breath to save that kid.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    Advise to young parents;

    Give your spouse a Full Set Edition of @Inor 's Children books. Our life changed so much for the better after Mrs Slippy gave me a First Edition Signed Copy of Inor's best seller; "Develop a Strong Back-Hand" ...That Lawn Ain't Gonna Mow Itself"! And other Motivation Tips!

    What if they panicked? what if it was an adult who was panicking. Of course, I would be tempted to pull some movie-style slap the person in the face to get them to stop freaking out but in real life, would it even happen that way? what would you do if you had to keep your kid quiet to escape or bug out safely and quietly? the reality is, no one knows how they'll react unless they've already been tested in the service or want not.

    I've actually looked into it and I've decided I would probably buy some Valerian Root or maybe if I could get my hands on something, something to knock my kid out entirely would be preferable if I had to. The reality is I guess ... prepping when you have kids is sorta petrifying. or with the elderly or disabled. at least the elderly know what's going on. but children and the disabled or even just adults with panic tendencies, idk.

    what would be your game plan if you were paired up with someone with a panic disorder, the disabled, small child, etc. ?

    In World war 2, in Burma, Sir Ord Wingate, 2nd cousin to Lawrence of Arabia, proposed Long Range Penetration groups to attack and harass the Japanese. The groups surgeons would cut the vocal cords of all burros so that they could not bray and give away their location as they used them to haul pack trains across the mountains.

    That worked well for them..... just saying. Fear of having that done to them is also a pretty good sound suppressant.
