ETV Recommends These Resources for Military Children and Their Families

Recommended resources for military families include:  

Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change   This primetime special, presented by Sesame Workshop and featuring Queen Latifah and John Mayer, tells the stories of service members returning home with injuries — both visible and invisible — and explores the heroic struggles their families face on the path to finding a "new normal.      

The Families. Coming Home: Military Families Cope with Change   Sam's guard unit was deployed to Iraq in October 2004, where he was supposed to be on a year-long combat tour. However, on July 4th, 2005, he was wounded by a large blast while on patrol in Baghdad.

Reintegration, Changes: "The New Normal.” Coming Home   As the injured parent continues to rehabilitate, your family is learning hopeful ways of going on and is starting to make long-term plans. For some, this may mean moving back to the base; for others, returning to a non-military environment.

Families Stand Together: A Guide for Getting through Tough Times   This hour-long, primetime special, hosted by Al Roker, Deborah Roberts, and Elmo chronicles the stories of four families coping with difficult economic circumstances but who, through the advice of experts and friends, are able to create positive outcomes for their children and strengthen family bonds.

When Families Grieve   In this primetime special, Sesame Workshop presents personal stories about coping with the death of a parent. Katie Couric joins Elmo and his furry friends to model communication between adults and children. They’ll also offer thoughtful suggestions and strategies that help the whole family.
