April is Military Child Month. Join Family of a Vet on Tuesday, April 29 as we pay tribute to, and gain more awareness of the Military Children who, just like their parents are serving our country. Show host Debbie Sprague and guest Debbie Nichols, Founder, and CEO of Military Children’s Collaborative Group, Inc.
We will be exploring how military children might feel different, most military children look like any other child in school, but they have invisible pain. They also face unique challenges such as feeling isolated and face many challenges when they are separated from their parent during deployments or training. We will also discuss one of the biggest challenges today, which is identifying where military children are located, and how we can take action to address this problem. Finally, we will learn ways that you can help improve the military child's life while they are experiencing a separation from their parent.

I am going to address what Mindfulness is, the benefits to children and families, and how to teach children to be mindful. Mindfulness is also called awareness, being present, being in the now, or being grateful. It's about self regulation and being in control of your body.

Featured Topic of The Week: Are children growing up too fast?
According to the National Military Family Association, "children of the National Guard and Reserve members face unique challenges since there are no military installations for them to utilize." Our Military Kids, Inc. pays special attention to those children, advocating to ensure stability and success in their lives. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is focused on children of deployed National Guard and Reserve service members, as well as children of Wounded and Fallen Warriors from all branches of service.
Linda Davidson and Gail Kruzel founded Our Military Kids in 2004 out of concern for school-age children of Reserve and National Guard members and the lack of family support services. With the sacrifice of being apart for months at a time, they observed families so financially stretched that they couldn't afford fees for sports, fine arts, and tutoring.
Filled with compassion, Linda and Gail laid the groundwork to obtain grants to pay the associated fees to help relieve separation stress and improve emotional stability, while building self-esteem and enabling academic achievement. Grants from Our Military Kids are made possible by generous contributions from corporations, charitable foundations, and individuals. The hard work and commitment of volunteers is the backbone of the non-profit, translating into more grant money available to children of deployed National Guardsmen and Reservists, as well as Wounded Warriors. With a Charity Navigator score of 100 for accountability and transparency, mass media interest is no surprise.
The exemplary work of Our Military Kids has been featured in Huffington Post Impact, Stars and Stripes, New York Post, Parade Magazine, Washington Post, Fox and Friends, ABC News, and countless others. Join us to peruse their 10-year history of going above and beyond for Our Military Kids.

Though America cannot claim credit for the invention of cartoons and other storytelling graphics, there can be little question that the art form today has its home solidly within the borders and culture of the United States. The editorial cartoons of English newspapers and magazines were quickly adopted by the American colonies, and thanks to Benjamin Franklin and other publishers, took on a distinctly Continental flavor. And throughout the many wars fought during the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries, cartoons grew in both sophistication and quality. But it was the development of comic books in the decade before World War II, that created a new medium of illustrated storytelling which became a distinctly American art form. Superheroes like Superman and Captain Marvel came into being, and the idea of visual storytelling became a mainstay in American media for young people. And when America went to war in 1941, comic books and their characters went to war too. In fact, comic books, their characters, and subsidiary media products (movies, etc.) provided an excellent medium to reach out to the very demographic that had to be recruited to fight World War II
To learn more about the role of comic books, cartoons, and other visual storytelling media in wartime, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern.'s guest this week is U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) the author Cord Scott, who has written COMICS AND CONFLICT, a history of comics and their use as wartime propaganda tools. And together they will explain the role of illustrated storytelling in politics and propaganda through the ages. Prepare for a entertaining and informative hour, talking about the nature of media messaging and power of visual storytelling.
*Lets a child know that he/she is loved. Love involves more than saying the words, ” I love you.” Fathers who love their children demonstrate their love by spending quality and quantity time with their children. Children who feel loved are more likely to develop strong emotional bonds with their fathers and develop healthy self-esteem.
*Provides a child with greater financial resources. Research indicates that families with an active father are “better off” financially. This means that children with active fathers are more likely to have access to resources that facilitate healthy development (e.g., food, clothing, shelter, quality medical care).
*Provides a child with a positive male role models. Children tend to model behavior (positive and negative) that they witness on a consistent basis. Active fathers can promote positive behaviors by setting a proper example for their children.
*Provides a child with emotional support. In addition to financial support, children also need emotional support from their parents. Active fathers listen and support their children when they experience joy, sadness, anger, fear, and frustration. Fathers who support their children emotionally tend to raise children who are more in tune with the needs of others.
*Provides a child with guidance and discipline. From infancy, children need proper guidance and discipline. Active fathers play an important role in teaching their children proper behavior by setting and enforcing healthy limits.
