BOSTON (AP) — A new website has launched that is aimed at giving advice to military parents on helping their children cope with stress.
Content will deal with helping children get through a parent’s military deployment and adjust to the service member’s return to family life.
The website at www.stayingstrong.org is connected to the Home Base Program.
Home Base is a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital and the Boston Red Sox Foundation that helps veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan recover from post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.
Program officials say there are about 13,000 military-connected children in Massachusetts.
