Field Problem: Books for Military Children

(includes other resources for child rearing)

I. Introduction.

   A. Life is good for Crooks and Henderson: Tara is pregnant. Crooks and Henderson have been invited to do a Field Exercise (TM) at Fort Stewart. Their story has hit DefenseLink, America Supports You, CBS with future coverage planned elsewhere.

   B. Listeners are invited to comment here or suggest a FP Good Point at www.fieldproblems.com/GoodPoints/guestbook.php.

II. Field Problem Discussion

   A. Websites: www.OperationBabyBlanket.com & www.zerotothree.org/military & www.sesameworkshop.org/tlc & www.daddydolls.com & www.nmfa.org & www.militarychild.org & www.Imalreadyhome.com & www.militaryfamily.com & www.militarybrats.com

   B. Caller Heather asks, "How can I make sure my 1.5 year old remembers my husband when he returns next year?"   

   C. Crooks and Henderson share their favorite books for military children. Find them at www.fieldproblems.com/booklist.shtml as well as books for military spouses.

   D. Crooks and Henderson's Good Point—Solutions are not "one size fits all." You need to know yourself, your preferences, and your hang-ups to make the best decision about healthcare benefits, pay options, living arrangements (off post vs. on post for example), and child raising. That being said, rest assured, there is a solution for you, no matter what your Field Problem.
