Having a parent deployed affects children, youth and teens differently from family to family. The Defense Department offers a range of support and resources across the services to help military families cope with all phases of deployment. In this episode, you’ll learn about the resources, such as the School Liaison Program and the important role school liaisons play, as well as Families OverComing Under Stress, or FOCUS, and Military and Family Life Counseling. In addition, you’ll hear deployment stories and how these resources specifically address both common and unique challenges families face.
