Just to let you know my wife I have no children of our own. However the oldest nephew on my wife's side of the family has issues and I'm seeing those problems firsthand.
A little background before I ask the question.
My wife and I have been married for 10 years now and 9 of those 10 her sister (my sister-in-law) and her family, husband and 3 nephews,were never in our lives. Her sister and family are yet again no longer in our lives, but the oldest nephew has decided to stay with my mother-in-law. My wife and I live close to my mother-in-law so I'm over there a-lot. For the 2 years that my sister-in-law was back in the family I have noticed why she was not in the family for a long time. She and her mother (my mother-in-law) don't get along.
While my sister-in-law and her family were here I have noticed things coming up missing. Most of the things missing were found in their possession but other things were not able to be located. I believe my sister-in-law and brother-in-law stole a lot of what is missing. As for the 3 nephews the 2 youngest ones seem to have no problems but the oldest however is acting like a gangsta and doing/making drugs. He is also not going to school although he said he would give it a try. Since he is acting this way now I just wonder what he will be like if TSHTF.
I give you the reader all of this information for the following reason. Children are very impressionable no matter what age they are. Anybody's mindset can change at any moment, especially children's since they process information differently than an adult. My question to you is this. If TSHTF and one or more of your children becomes unruly during and possibly because of this event would you be able to handle this along with what is going on around you?
