Introducing the NEW Guide to Working with Military Kids
Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services has put together a fantastic free resource for everyone who works with kids.

Are you a teacher, a childcare provider or a counsellor? Maybe you’re a tutor or you coach sports for kids? If so, chances are you’ve worked with one or many of the 81,000 kids that come from military families in Canada. This guide is full of facts and useful information that is sure to help you in your work with children. 

Children and youth from military families can be some of the most resilient kids out there. But they also face a number of unique challenges such as:
  • Repeated relocation
  • Absences of one or both parents due to work
  • Parental deployments to volatile areas
  • Unpredictable work hours for their parent(s)
All of this can represent sources of stress that regular kids never have to worry about in their day-to-day lives. 

What can you do?
It’s easy!

Read the Guide to Working with Military Kids (and share it with others who also work with kids)!

We promise that after reading it, you’ll understand so much better the challenges that military kids face every day.  The valuable insight you’ll gain is sure to be useful in your work with any children and youth from military families in the future.
