April is Month of the Military Child, where we honor the service and sacrifice of our military children. Whether it’s facing a move far away, saying goodbye to a deploying parent, or trying to fit in at a new school or town, military kids face unique challenges. DoDLive wants to say that we care, and we’re thankful.
There are a few websites dedicated exclusively to the military child.
For many military kids, moving can be exciting, but it can also be pretty hard as well. Children of all ages face anxiety with
going to a new place, making new friends, going to a new school and sometimes even a new country. These worries are not unique, and the military families who face them are not alone. Military Youth on the Move has a great website dedicated to helping military kids to connect to other kids in their age group who are facing the same situation.
From elementary school to high school, this site was designed to cover topics like dealing with deployment, moving to a new location and changing schools. The site also covers other things like dealing with divorce, getting enough exercise and making money. Being a military kid isn’t always easy, but luckily there are places, organizations and people that are here to help make life a little easier. Go ahead and check out the website for more information!
