Child & Youth Advocacy

Discover resources for MilParents of young children and teens, including advice about body boundaries and personal safety.

Our fast-paced world presents many challenges for military families. One way the Defense Department supports MilFams is by offering resources for parents to help their children make choices that promote healthy relationships.

These resources can help them talk to their children about healthy body boundaries, peer pressure, changes to their bodies, social media and more. They also equip parents to help prevent harmful behaviors, such as learning what to do if their child is being bullied or engaging in harmful behavior.

The more MilParents know, the more they can be the best guardians of their children. Discover these resources and learn more.
