Growing up as a military child has both its advantages and difficulties; and the military services have always depended upon stable families to help ensure unit readiness. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Department of Defense’s Office of Military Community and Family Policy has partnered with Penn State University’s Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness to implement what is called the THRIVE Initiative in yet another effort to empower military parents as they nurture their children.

On 16 August, it is offering a ninety minute, on-line seminar focusing on the GROW program,  its most advanced product within the THRIVE Initiative.  GROW is designed for the parents of children ages 5 through 10 years of age.  The webinar will teach positive parenting techniques, stress management strategies, and health promotion skills which can be used to help children be happy and healthy.

To learn more about the program and to register for the online seminar (or to catch it later), go to Grow! Empowering Parents to THRIVE.  Hurry!
