When Your Mom Goes to War is devoted to the children who are watching and learning how to cope. Communicating about difficult topics such as deployment to war can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming for adults. Answering the questions and concerns of children can be even more complex. Without the vocabulary to express difficult emotions, children tend to simply emulate the adult around them. When unwanted stress from deployment emerges, positive coping strategies are a necessary remedy towards insight and solutions. Parents and children alike can be empowered with a “toolbox” of ideas to help them move through such an emotional time.
