:) I hope!
not really sure what to write in here.
but u have used this pages myself in the past so I figured I share them with you
 
these links cover a few things from water treatment to first aid or what you will see while you  are wandering about be it plant , animal, mineral or what you see in the night sky sitting around your camp at night.

I don't have kids but I found a link for kid safety, I personally don't know if its any good or not but I thought i add it thou for the hiker with kids, I hope it helps. if not let me know
