    This link is worth reviewing, not only if you work with military children,

    but also contains good information on parenting at any grade level.  Videos,

    the deployment cycle, coping styles and mechanisms.....many of these can

    apply to other children within our greater military community.

     

    You can register/view no matter who you are.  Good stuff for training

    teachers/staff in schools with high military populations.
