As I'm sure you've already heard, April is the Month of the Military Child. What exactly does this mean? To me, it's a reminder that I'm not the only one in this family making sacrifices for my husband's military career. Not only are my children sacrificing as well, but they probably don't even understand why, which makes it that much more difficult.
I love that there is an entire month dedicated to saluting our children. They deserve some appreciation, don't they? And I hope that we continue to remember the unique needs of our military children during the other 11 months out of the year.
That's why I compiled a list of resources just for military children. I can't claim to have used all of these resources, but the ones I don't have personal experience with come highly recommended by families who do. Whether they advocate for military brats' education, offer ways to cope through family separations, or provide a safe place for military brats to meet online and support each other, these resources all have the same goal: to help make these children's lives a little bit easier.
