Welcome to the Children & Deployment site. As you may know, military Families and their Soldiers endure a tremendous amount of hardships during long deployments. Families must sacrifice their personal comfort and adjust to a new routine during a Soldier’s absence, which often times is a difficult adjustment. Although deployments can be hard and stressful to overcome for adults, it is much more difficult and complex for children and youth.
The demands on children and youth can be complicated as they are greatly impacted by the disruption of a deployment. As a parent, it is in the best interest of your children to help them find ease and comfort during the coping and adjustment process.
This site is intended to provide parents with helpful resources that will allow children and youth to better cope with deployment and their changing routine. The site also offers appropriate strategies for educators to practice with children and youth who are adjusting to a new and upcoming deployment.
