You and Your Military Hero 

“One of the hardest things to do in a military family’s life is help military children deal with the stressors of deployment. You and Your Military Hero is an exceptionally well-written and insightful tool geared at helping children positively approach difficult times. It is an essential resource for any group facilitator, counselor, teacher, or parent!”
National Military Family Association

You and Your Military Hero is a valuable resource for parents. While it focuses on children who are dealing with a loved one’s deployment, it also teaches positive thinking skills that any child could use throughout life. It includes kid-friendly language, examples, and a guide in the form of a friendly dog named Flipp to move children through dealing with their feelings and giving them a sense of control while encouraging conversations between parents and children. These simple activities can get children comfortable with the language of their emotions.”

“What a remarkable book! The authors have put together a wonderful resource for school psychologists, counselors, and social workers to proactively assist young children in developing more positive cognitive skills while their parent(s) are deployed. With so many military families struggling with the demands of repeated and protracted deployments, this book can be a useful tool in helping strengthen the resiliency of their children.”

"We wish this book would have been available for our four children when their Dad was serving in Iraq. Our children had so many mixed emotions and had difficulty expressing them. You and Your Military Hero is an excellent resource for anyone who has a "STAR Hero" deployed."
