No matter your family's areas of expertise, y'all will have many exciting opportunities to add to these existing skills. You and your family may also have many chances to learn new skills, increasing your family's chance of survival. Reinforcing old skills and learning new skills, as a family, also allows your family to grow and become a closer, stronger family.
With you and your partner sharing the preparedness and household responsibilities with your children, they will also have a chance to learn leadership skills, such as making presentations, formulating plans, leading small groups, and many more. (I hope you didn't think you were going to be the family preparedness expert, on every subject!) Skills that are badly needed even in 'good' times.
You and your family can also have fun, if you are frugal with your preps, by combining family events such as visits to museums (to document historical machines), travel to expos (to document new procedures), camping (to practice bushcraft skills), family walks (to gain physical fitness), gardening and canning you family's food (medium-term food storage), and many others. You can also save money by distancing yourself from the common affliction 'Keeping Up with the Jeffersons' (It's like 'Keeping up with the Joneses,' but the neighbors are preppers)
Lastly, most people think preparing to survive an catastrophic event must be the sole goal of a family. That isn't true. You and your family, if your prepare for the common and more likely events, will have most of the skills and supplies to survive an event, like an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) attack, Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), or other world changing event.

Things You Might Want to Think About
Are you prepared ... for the commute?
IQ is one indicator of a person's intelligence.
An indicator that changes according to education level, environmental factors, and ... the IQ test.
That's right. A Hawaiian can't identify a snake on national tests or understand the word porch. The same goes for an illiterate taking an IQ test that requires reading. Eeven though; they might be very intelligent, the test will show both are morons.
This is one thing that you will always have with you, in an event.
The only problem.
We (you and your family) don't know which knowledge; we will need.
Each President leaves office, handing the country over to a new administration. Some times for better, and some times for worse.
Well, ... The last two (Bush 43 and Obama 44) have given the next president and every one after that, unprecedented power in our lives. A power in the wrong hands that could be devastating.
Whether drunk or sober, setting fire to a place of worship is reprehensible.
Calling it criticism is ... criminal.
For me, technology is a double-edged sword. It can be useful and harmful at the same time.
Now, it seems there is a time limit for which one it is.
"... such holiday should serve as a time for Americans to reflect on the principles of racial equality and nonviolent social change espoused by Martin Luther King, Jr.; ..."
"But undesirable or not, keeping the floodgates open for the teeming masses yearning to loot the wealthy West and then burn it down, turning it into the same inbred Islamic failed states they’re teeming out of, pretty much guarantees a nativist backlash and a police state that, once spun up, is unlikely to stop with the invaders (any more than the Gestapo stopped with its initial targets)."
"So what's truly progressive? We start with four things: ..."
"It won’t be helped by the official organ of the Deep State, The New York Times. Just look at the way they played the other big story last week, the one about the disabled man tortured by four young people in Chicago. Can anyone say what’s wrong with this picture?"
"Reality. It is the thing that does not go away when you stop believing in it."
