Left Behind: Children of Soldiers
Jerles, Joe F.
SRATE Journal, v20 n1 p21-26 Win 2010-2011
Recent international conflicts have increased the dangers of American military personnel. These soldiers are part of the growing contingent of military families with children. Because these children are more aware of the dangers, the stress and worry affects them in a variety of ways, especially in school-age children. This article investigates current research and action in three areas: (1) symptoms exhibited by children of deployed parents, (2) how teachers, schools, and communities recognize and respond to it, and (3) what programs have been developed or are under development to assist parents and schools in helping students learn to cope with the stresses at work. The article concludes with information and recommendations for parents, relatives, educators, and those who support them.
