The well-being of children from military families

McGuinness, T. M., & McGuinness, J. P.


Since 2001, the rapid pace of deployments ofmilitary personnelwho are parents has created additional concern for the emotional and behavioralhealthof theirchildren. Repeated deployments create prolonged periods of uncertainty and an increased sense of danger on the part ofchildrenand at-home spouses.Childrenof all ages have higher rates of anxiety and depressive symptoms. Academic problems forchildrenof deployed parents also occur more frequently. The psychological stress of both at-home and deployed parents is associated with thechild's level of emotional distress. Awareness of the possibility of greater challenges facingmilitaryfamiliestoday is warranted to identify distress and referral to treatment.
