New App for Military Parents

military family

ZERO TO THREE has developed a great new resource, an app called Babies on the Homefront. This free app for smartphones, available in both English and Spanish on iTunes and the Google Play store, is designed especially for military and veteran families as they navigate the many transitions that are part of serving, including deployment and reintegration, moving and returning to civilian life. The app makes it easy to select from behavior tips and activities for parents and children, with a special section for parental self-care. This product was made available through a generous grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation. Babies On The Homefront Website

Babies on the Homefront provides military and veteran parents ideas for enhancing everyday moments with their baby or toddler. Parents will find lots of material to add to their toolbox of strategies, including:

  • Behavior Tips—Ideas for handling those tougher parenting moments like tantrums, or those unique challenges like missing a deployed parent

  • PT (Play Time)—ideas for creating activities

  • At Ease—information and ideas on self-care

Parents can personalize the app with their baby’s picture and create a photo gallery of their child’s moods in Feeling Photos. To make it even easier, parents can sort the information by their young child’s age and specify their situation as; at Home, leaving soon, deployed, home again, a veteran, or visiting a hospital. The app also allows quick access to a series of podcasts on parenting for military and veteran families. Babies on the Homefront was developed by ZERO TO THREE: The National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families through a generous grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.
