Supporting the emotional well-being of our troops and addressing and creating solutions for stress in military families is paramount. Children in military families are exposed to stress levels that could be considered toxic according to The American Academy of Pediatrics. The National Center for Child Traumatic Stress notes that, “Military children experience unique challenges related to military life and culture.
These include deployment-related stressors and reintegration.” Military children, teens, and spouses live with the constant fear of losing a parent, parental separation, moving and making new friends, all while living in a household with one often overloaded parent holding down the fort. The dynamics of welcoming a returning parent that has been injured physically or mentally is real. Children often mimic behaviors of a returning parent with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Even an at home parent struggling with anxiety can have a significant impact on their children’s well-being. Managing stress as a family needs to be a high priority.
Stress Free Kids provides much needed tools to help military families manage stress, anger, and anger. Techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation and breathing are offered for every age group. These are the same techniques the Pentagon has made available to vets to help stress in military families. According to Dr.Sonja Batten, Last year alone over 400,000 veterans received a diagnosis of PTSD. Officials estimate 1 in 5 suffer from acute stress, anxiety, depression or other mental problems from a war zone deployment.
