Children And Youth Behavioral Military And Family Life Counselors Are Available

Divorce is often a very difficult experience for all involved, especially children. The added challenges of living in a military family may make things even worse. Dealing with the absence of a parent (or parents) due to deployment already brings a great deal of stress to the lives of adults and children alike. The realization that parents will separate permanently due to a military divorce may be “the last straw” for some children, and they may begin to act out in negative ways.

A great deal of support is available to military families. Military OneSource offers access to military and family life counselors who are specifically trained to work with children and youth. All of these counselors are licensed, hold graduate degrees in their respective fields and have passed criminal background checks. All counseling is confidential, with the exception of certain instances that may need to be reported to relevant authorities, such as suicide or homicidal behavior, threats, and/or abuse. These professional counselors may be able to help children deal with issues including, but not limited to:

  • Self-esteem
  • Communication and relationships at home and at school
  • Life skills, such as problem solving, conflict resolution and adjusting to change
  • Behavioral issues, including bullying and anger management
  • Changes on the “home front,” such as deployment and reunion, divorce and grief and loss 

Divorce is never easy, and military divorce comes with its own unique set of circumstances. Darrell M. Harding, Attorney at Law has been serving Norfolk military families for more than 20 years.
