Studies estimate that 2 million U.S. children have been exposed to a wartime deployment of a military parent in the past 10 years. Some of those children experienced repeat deployments of a parent while other children experienced both parents being deployed. Parental deployment can stir up a variety of emotions in children, ranging from fear and anxiety to anger and sadness. And it can lead to a variety of academic and behavioral challenges for children. So it’s important for parents, caregivers, and other adults to recognize how military deployments affect children.


Read the Case Study: When Parents Deploy in the textbook on page 300. 

Review Text References: Chapter 1: Perspectives on Family Involvement: pages 5-9, Chapter 3: Work and Family: pages 71-75, Chapter 4: Family Strengths : pages 88-92, Chapter 6: Military Families: pages 148-149, Chapter 8: Conflict Resolution; pages 209-210, Chapter 10: Family Life Education: pages Consider This: Parts A-G: Pages 244-245
