April is the month of the military child and honestly, we’re all making things up as we go. In this Minicast, Sharita talks about her children’s resilience.

Sharita has 5 ways to foster this ability in our children.

It has been a hard few years for families, and this new author wanted to create a tale that would resonate with children confused by COVID, long distance, and periods of military deployment when hugs aren’t an option. So a Military spouse published a fairytale Bear book to help families with difficult conversations. The book is about hope, bravery, and love – there is always hope and sometimes you have to continue to be brave for love.
In The Bear and The Hug, Bear ventures out of his cave after a long sleep to find the world outside is not how he left it. Instead of greeting him with open arms, Bear’s friends keep their distance. With help from his friends, he learns that bravery and hope are what are required to save hugs.
