While it is true that children from military families live unique and interesting lives, it is also true that they face many challenges and special circumstances that civilian children and families don't experience. These can include gaps in school attendance and learning due to frequent moves, being separated from a parent who has been deployed, and a sense of isolation in the midst of a civilian community.

This unique guide provides parents with the information they need to choose a welcoming school or daycare program and suggests steps they can take to advocate for their children. It also highlights the types of questions parents should ask about how their children are faring socially, emotionally, and academically, such as:What can I do to help my child make a smooth transition to a new school?How can I support my child academically? What role can sports and extracurricular activities play? What resources or staff does my school have to meet the needs of military children? Written in an engaging style by experts in the field, this guide will help parents form partnerships with teachers and administrators as they work to make schools more military-friendly. Guides written specifically for teachers, school administrators, and pupil personnel are also available from Teachers College Press. All royalties from the sale of these books are being donated to military children s educational causes.
