Would you encourage or discourage a preteen obsessed with prepping for


an apocalypse? If you had a preteen who was becoming a bit obsessed (as in pretty much the only thing they talk about or want to spend money on) with prepping how would you react?

    He's been really big into politics and world history since he was about 4-5. He talks about those topics a good bit when discussing the apocalypse. Wonder if related? Maybe time to speak to the counselor. He has Aspergers also.

    He really isn't a sad kid. He also doesn't focus on the dying part or negative aspects as much as the being prepared parts. Thanks for the answer!

    My son has been on this topic for about a year, he watches those survival shows on discovery. He is a bit introverted, but popular in school. I prep mildly, but his obsessiveness on the topic makes me a bit nervous. He wants prepper stuff for xmas.
