Babies on the Homefront
http://babiesonthehomefront.org/
Babies on the Homefront provides military and veteran parents ideas for enhancing everyday moments with their baby or toddler. Parents will find lots of material to add to their toolbox of strategies, including:

  • Behavior Tips—Ideas for handling those tougher parenting moments like tantrums, or those unique challenges like missing a deployed parent
  • PT (Play Time)—ideas for creating activities
  • At Ease—information and ideas on self-care

Parents can personalize the app with their baby’s picture and create a photo gallery of their child’s moods in Feeling Photos. To make it even easier, parents can sort the information by their young child’s age and specify their situation as At Home, Leaving Soon, Deployed, Home Again, a Veteran, or visiting a hospital. The app also allows quick access to a series of vodcasts on parenting for military and veteran families. Babies on the Homefront was developed by ZERO TO THREE: The National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families.


Sesame Street for Military Families
http://sesamestreetformilitaryfamilies.org/mobile-apps/
The Sesame Street for Military Families app puts all of Sesame’s bilingual (English & Spanish) resources for military families right in your pocket! Now you can use your mobile device to access engaging videos, articles, storybooks, parent guides, and more to help you support your preschool and school-aged children as they encounter transitions common to military families.

Because of the sensitive topics in this app, we highly recommend that a parent or guardian previews the materials before co-viewing with a child.

Topic areas for military families include: deployments, homecomings, injuries, grief, self-expression, moving.
