MilitaryParenting.org is a free, online course that gives a “boot camp” approach to the basics of parenting.

According to The National Center for Telehealth & Technology, located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the interactive course helps parents deal with everyday problems and family issues that are unique to the military lifestyles. Videos of military and veteran families sharing their stories add a unique first-person perspective.

According to a 2011 Defense Department demographic report, more than 44 percent of military members have families, and 67 percent of those families have children younger than age 12 living with them.
