Trying to help your child adapt to military life? Don't miss this!

Renowned pediatrician, psychologist to visit Lejeune, teach child resiliency

Cpl. Jonathan G. Wright, Marine Corps Base

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — It is an old Marine Corps adage that, "If the Corps wanted you to have a spouse, it would have issued you one."
While marriage to a service member has its own obstacles to overcome as compared to having a civilian spouse, the trials of being a military child dealing with parents’ deployments and periodic moves can sometimes become overwhelming. This may indeed be the case for many Marine and Navy families aboard the largest Marine Corps installation on the East Coast.
This is why Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg, M.D., MD Ed, a nationally-renowned pediatrician and psychiatrist, will be visiting Jacksonville High School from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. and the Russell Marine and Family Center Auditorium aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune from 7 to 8:30 p.m., March 3, to present his seminar on how to raise resilient children in military-oriented lifestyles.
"He’s an absolute expert on what he teaches," said David Schock, regional school liaison officer for Marine Corps Installations East. "He helps families cope with their loved ones being away and teaches how to better raise their children on their own."
Specializing in Adolescent Medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Ginsburg uses a blend of humor and real-life scenarios to educate others on what a child might be going through growing up in a military household but reluctant to tell about.
In the one and a half hour class, attendees will be exposed to everyday strategies in recognizing when a child may be at risk and developing the seven C’s in a maturing child; competence, confidence, connection, character, contribution, coping and control.
"(Ginsburg) has worked with military children for many years and has recently focused on learning the culture of Marine Corps families and what the children go through during a parental deployment," said Sarah Wiltgen, deputy director of Marine and Family Programs. "He’s really good about giving take-home strategies and pointers on the impact of family and deployment stressors in children."
Resiliency is the ability for children to learn how to adapt to changing situations; something that is crucial to the modern military child.
Ginsburg, at no cost to the base, is ensuring Camp Lejeune families are aware of the impacts, both recognizable and not, being such a child will have in their maturing stages.
"Military children move an average of six to eight times during their 13 years of schooling," said Schock. "There are approximately 2.1 million military children throughout the world, and half of that population is under 10 years of age. They have the possibility of only knowing war and living with deployment stress and the loss of support all their lives."
With another major Lejeune-based deployment on the horizon, Ginsburg is aiming to further equip military families with the tools they will need in raising their children in a time of war and be more confident in recognizing when deployment stress may become too heavy.
For more information regarding Dr. Ginsburg’s visits, call Schock at 449-9748, or Julie Fulton, the base school liaison officer, at (910) 449-9915.
