Are you the mom of a service member that recently went off to boot camp or is getting ready to go?Whether you come from a military family, were a military spouse, or have no experience at all, the first months of your child’s military training are very stressful. And I am just talking about the parents!
We want to help you navigate these first weeks of military training so you can transform, just like your son or daughter as they train to become their best selves.
Military Mom’s on the Home Front
Whether it is basic training or officer’s candidate school, service academy Plebe Summer or ROTC indoctrination, there are some similarities. You will have little to no contact as they go through an intense physical and mental training environment, and there is very little you can do to help them.
That combination can make for a very stressful time for you as a parent of a service member, since it is most likely diametrically opposed to life before the military. It’s a big adjustment!
Our hope is that by learning more about the big picture we can give you tools to cope with boot camp and beyond, when their military life can bring even greater challenges.
As train to become warriors, you can also train to be warriors on the home front, ready to support your child and yourself if duty calls them to serve in harm’s way.
Every day is a new opportunity for change and personal growth.
