The Defense Department is committed to the health and well-being of military children and families. That’s why the DOD teamed with the Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness at Penn State to create free, online parenting-education programming for busy parents. Thrive programming provides age-appropriate, evidence-informed, best-parenting guidelines that promote positive parenting, stress management and healthy lifestyle practices for children from birth to 18.
