Parents who have a child in the military often find comfort in connecting with other military parents. But sometimes it’s tough to find those families if you don’t where to look. For many people, the answer is to join a support group for parents of service members. These groups, whether in-person or online, can provide the comfort and comradery of being with others who share your experiences.
A support group can:
- Ease feelings of loneliness or isolation.
- Provide an outlet for discussing your feelings.
- Reduce stress or anxiety.
- Be a source of information, resources and guidance.
