On this Quick Tips episode, we're talking about helping teens navigate a parent's deployment.
So often, deployment resources are geared towards younger children, and while that’s of course important, and I’ve also covered it before on several episodes, today we are focusing on our teenagers.
This info is from part of a talk I gave during the amazing and supportive PILLAR deployment retreat in fall 2022 about helping your teens—and yourself!—through a parent’s deployment.
Teens are so amazing, challenging, and wonderful, all at the same time. Helping our teens get through the deployment of a parent is a privilege, but it’s a time that we can use all the help we can get. Our military family went through multiple deployments, and one of my claims to fame is getting through a year-long deployment of my husband when all four of my kids were teenagers at the same time. If I can do it, you can do it, too! We'll talk about some practical tips for helping teens navigate this tough time, as well as finding support for YOU.
