/ Resilient /: Able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.
There are SO many words that can describe a Military-Child. Resilient is the word that pops in to my head, first and foremost. Other great descriptions:
Loyal – Adaptable – Strong – Supportive – Compassionate – Empowered
These are important words for a military-child! Sometimes they come naturally, sometimes they may need to be reinforced. This week Star Henderson and Tara Crooks of Army Wife Network took the time to talk with Ingrid Torres-McCullough of the American Red Cross on the topic of building resiliency in military children. What are symptoms of childhood-stress? How do you help your child through the stress? What about the extra stress of being a military-child? Great questions! Find your answers; take a listen and enjoy!
What do you need to do to support a Military Child?
Listen – Tolerance – RespectPositivity
… and very importantly as a Military-Parent, Take Care of Yourself!
