Little Kids, Big Questions
is a series of 12 podcasts that translates the research of early childhood development into parenting practices that mothers, fathers and other caregivers can tailor to the needs of their own child and family. Click here to listen to or download the podcasts. This podcast series is generously funded by MetLife Foundation.

Dear Parent or Caregiver,

Here is an opportunity to create your own Over There Children's book!  Download the attached PDF (either the mommy version or the daddy version, depending on which parent is deployed), print it out, and attach photos that represent the spirit of the text.  If you and your child are feeling extra creative, you can even draw your own illustrations.  Do whatever feels right to capture your family's unique deployment story.  After completing the book, keep it on hand and read it to your child as often as each of you would like.
