Military Children and Families

The Future of Children


Though relatively little research has been done on young children in military families, we highlight ways to understand these children as their families grow, change, and experience various kinds of stress, with an overall focus on how to optimize young children's development, bearing in mind their unique needs. To accomplish this, we first discuss developmental theories that are relevant for understanding young children in military families, particularly attachment theory, which helps us see how change, disruption, and loss affect young children. We then turn to parenting, including parents' mental health and its effects on young children. We examine how increased stress in the family is related to child maltreatment and domestic violence, and how these factors affect pregnant women in military families. We also describe interventions and support programs for military families with young children, including those that are still being developed. Finally, we conclude with recommendations, based on research and theory, that can guide policy and programs for young children in military families.
