As parents, we know that reading to our children is not only an important contribution to their development, but a powerful opportunity for emotional connection. So when a military parent deploys, the parent is challenged to continue their vital role, despite a long separation. Father’s Day is just one of the many special holidays that a military family may not get to spend together. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhI9AH2lMxc] United Through Reading’s Military Program is one way a military parent can remain engaged over the course of a deployment. As this awww-inducing video from a United Through Reading beneficiary family shows, children are never too young to benefit from the soothing sound of their parent’s voice, and a dad is never too far away to comfort his son in this simple way.
