Practical ideas for developing effective partnerships with families, addressing special issues (the deployment of both parents, single parents, and re-deployment) are included. And creative ideas for helping children stay connected with their deployed family member are shared. Many resources are woven throughout the book: websites, organizations, adult and children book lists, and a glossary of common military terms (for those of us who are illiterate to military lingo).
This book is a valuable resource for me and I highly recommend it to educators, child care workers, counselors, families, health care providers, and others serving military children.
It not only covered just about everything that I can possibly think of for helping our daughter through her second deployment, (third for me), it was "light", interesting, and gave so much "light at the end of the tunnel" kind of feeling. I also teach in a pre-school, which has some military children attending. There are tips for teachers, so we can better work with these wonderful and strong, military children. I can also provide so much useful information to our child's Teacher, as well. So many educators are in the dark when it comes to what emotions a military child experiences.
The book covers ideas from how to stay in touch, to what is really going on in a baby's, toddler's, child's and older child's, (teen's), head while their mom or dad is deployed. This is one of the toughest times that any child can experience, but I found this book to be a tremendous, and wonderful "bible" for us military families. I've learned so much from this book - Total Thumbs up!!!
