The Department of Defense (DOD) website, Military OneSource, provides numerous resources for military families including guides for helping children cope with a parent’s deployment. The site also provides information about the military children and youth services within DOD.
Military Kids Connect is a new resource from the Department of Defense that was created to help children cope with a parent’s deployment. It involves a social networking component and some resources for the non-deployed caregivers/parents.
