We know this is an especially difficult time for our military families and children. Although resiliency and inner strength are qualities we admire in military families, during these uncertain times, MCEC is here with additional support. Taking what we’ve learned from over 20 years of helping military kids and their families successfully manage transition and mobility issues, we have culled supportive content and resources for parents, educators, and students. We hope you will use the content and resources here to inspire and renew a sense of hope and wellbeing in your life and the lives of those in your care.

Welcome to a series of eight TedEd Lessons focused on the unique aspects of military and veteran-connected children and their quest to be college and career ready by the time they graduate from high school. Each lesson includes a short video,  in-depth content area, discussion forum, and brief assessment for understanding. These lessons are designed for education professionals, child & youth professionals, parents and anyone who has an interest in supporting the children whose parents serve us all. The overall objectives of the series are to:

  • Introduce participants to the mobile military and veteran-connected child.
  • Share information and strategies for inclusion, transition and motivation of military and veteran-connected children.
  • Create an environment where all children graduate from high school successfully ready for college and careers, regardless of their transition status.
When parents make the transition from a military career to a civilian life – whether that change is planned or sudden — there are often unique challenges for their children. This is particularly true if service-related injuries are involved.

These two companion videos provide:

Supporting Veterans’ Children through Transitions: Awareness – of the issues involved in the transition from service member to veteran.


Supporting Veterans’ Children through Transitions: Understanding – of the challenges for the veterans’ children and families.

These videos are ideal for professional learning & discussion groups, especially when viewed with the discussion questions and additional resources available by click on the accompanying TedEd link.
