Purple Up for Military Kids!

KEEP_CALM_GRAPHIC_FINAL

April is Month of the Military Child, a time to recognize our military and veteran-connected children and youth for their service and sacrifice.

Today, nearly two million military-connected children and youth (birth through age 22) live with perpetual challenges presented by frequent moves, parental deployments, and a host of life transitions that include reintegration and dealing with profoundly changed parents. The well-being of these children depends heavily on a network of supportive adults.

Grit, determination, and perseverance are a few characteristics of the resilient trailblazers we know as military kids. These traits are a result of the challenges they persist through, and contribute to strong character development and hardiness.

April is a time to celebrate our military and veteran-connected children, the vast majority of whom attend public schools and live in nearly every zip code in the country. Look for opportunities to show your appreciation for the military and veteran-connected children in your lives or communities, and thank them for sharing their parents with the country.

 

March is Read Aloud Month

There is an easy way to improve your children’s chances at school success. It will entertain and delight them. It will strengthen the bonds between you and your children. And it is virtually free.

Sound too good to be true? Actually, it isn’t. The magical method: taking time to read aloud to your child.

In an era of high-stakes testing and education reforms and revolutions, research has repeatedly proved that one simple parenting technique is among the most effective. Children who are read aloud to by parents get a head start in language and literacy skills and go to school better prepared.

In other words, reading that bedtime story may not only entertain and soothe Johnny, it may also develop his vocabulary, improve his ability to learn to read, and – perhaps most important – foster a lifelong love of books and reading.
