If you were trying to find a photo that would represent the word “resilient” in a picture dictionary, one of the images that might fit the definition perfectly would be a picture of a military child.
Families with a Canadian Armed Forces member will likely experience multiple moves during the military member’s years of service and military children follow the career paths of their parents wherever that may lead. That means changing and adapting to new schools, losing and making new friends, saying goodbye to perfectly decorated bedrooms and trying to fit furniture into a new space…the list goes on and on. Military children also often experience a parent being absent for weeks or months at a time, sometimes to risk-filled situations, and families need to figure out how they will operate with a key member not being present.
