Are you the mother of a service member that is getting ready to go or recently went off to boot camp?
Whether you are a military family member or not, we just want you to know that the first months of your child's military training are very stressful. And we mean to talk about the parents here.
We would love to help you to get over these first weeks while your son or daughter was going through the training to be their best selves so you could also transform as well.
Military Mom’s on the Home Front
Most of the training will have some similarities whether it is officer's candidate school, ROTC indoctrination, service academy Plebe Summer or basic training. As they are going through intense physical and mental trainings, you usually will have little to zero contact from them and obviously you can't do much to help them anyway.
It's a very big adjustment in life for you compared to life before the military. It can make you very stressful as a Mother of a service member.
By learning more about the big picture of the boot camp and beyond, we hope can bring you the tools you need to cope with when the military life can give you even great challenges.
As your child is training to become a warrior, you can also become a warrior on the home front. So that if the duty calls your child to serve in harm's way, you can be ready to support them anytime.
