Prepare your child for a parent's deployment with these tips!
Preparing for a deployment is never easy. Luckily, there are a multitude of tools and checklists to help spouses and families deal with this experience. We've found something missing amongst these tools: a checklist to prepare your little one for a parent's deployment. It is so important to communicate leading up to your deployment date, and to help them understand what will happen while you are gone.
At WavHello, we believe in connecting families, both near and far. The importance of long-distance connection is especially prevalent within the military family community. Using our VoiceShare app, you can share stories, books, music and voice recordings with your child from anywhere in the world. Before leaving, a parent can record special messages, a reading of a favorite book or even a lullaby that can be played for their child through BellyBuds, our baby bump speakers, or through our SoundBub Bluetooth speaker. That way you can still read your little one their bedtime story; even from thousands of miles away.
We put together this list to help you prepare your child for deployment, and we hope it will make the process a little easier on you both!
