Militry Families Project Link
I have been studying the Zero to Three website. This site is really amazing and offers so much information about children and their brain and social emotional development. I noticed there was a link to the Military Families Project so I followed it. Wow, they offer so much more information about how families can help their infants and toddlers deal with the stress of military deployment. When you think about it, the attachment that is forming in those first few years is vital to a baby's development for the rest of their lives. So what happens when a parent has to be out of the home for many months due to military service? Children go through the grief process and can be under amazing stress during that time. This site offers resources for parents and caregivers to help the child move through the process and stay resilient. I was very i impressed with the information and now have another resource to share with parents and co-workers facing these difficult issues.
