    So we should help/encourage him. The EMP thought brought to you by Nat Geo, TV, books and general talk. It's no wonder.

    And how do we know that the OP is really a teenager?

    He has a teenage mentality.

    Have y'all played any video games lately? This is where the looting type of mentality comes from. Yeah, even though I'm ancient I still love my PS4. I know this stuff is fantasy. Imagine growing up with it.

    So did Blackjack. But an adult's grammatical style. Not a "text message" style.

    Sigh, one of the reasons I am wanting to prep is so I won't have to resort to looting.

    If I had a year, or even a month, worth of supplies and a bunker, or a relatives house in a rural area, to live in of course I wouldn't loot. I would head towards the location immediately.

    Tell me what you people would do in my shoes. If you lived in the city with your family, and you only have a few days worth of food and no place to bug out to?
    Would you really not loot? If not, then how would you survive?

    We don't, isn't it better to err on the side of caution just in case he is?

    I don't know if I can answer your question honestly Auntie, so I'll think about it for a while.

    However, I do believe that children should not be on the internet at all. My sons were not on the internet (unsupervised or not) when they were 15/16. At least not in my home. I'll repeat, children shouldn't be on the internet. Parents today SUCK.

    Listen and listen well. People have told you what they'd do and also directed you to the many resources this site offers. Yet you still have this immature desire to passively aggressively play stupid while asking the same question over in a different way.

    If you are truly a 15/16 year old you shouldn't be on the internet and your parents are remiss in allowing you to do so. If they are unaware of your activities then they are again, remiss in their parenting and you are a little brat.

    Either way I don't buy your crap.

    Because children are not prepared mentally/emotionally to handle most of what is on the internet.
