Raising children and communicating with your spouse or intimate partner can be quite difficult and cause strain on the entire Family. Offering services and support to address identified stress and prevent Family violence is the goal of the Family Advocacy Program (FAP). FAP offers a variety of services to strengthen military Families through education and activities that promote life skills and cultivate healthy relationships. SUB-PROGRAMS Baby Bundles Command and Troop Education New Parent Support Program (NPSP): In-Home Support WORKSHOPS Life Skills Seminars: Our healthy relationships, stress management, anger management, and conflict resolution classes focus on healthy communication and building strong relationships. We also collaborate with other programs such as Army Substance Abuse Program and the Military Family Life Consultants, to provide curriculum on other topics as needed or requested. We can modify material and make classes available through unit groups and FRG meetings as well. Parenting Workshops: We offer various parenting classes covering all children’s ages, from 0–18, to provide education on alternative discipline techniques and developmental stages. We are located inside the Soldier and Family Readiness Center building. We are located at 10250 4th Armored Division Dr. near the intersection of 4th Armored Div.

> Domestic violence (also called intimate partner violence, domestic abuse, or relationship abuse) is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. It can happen to anyone at any point in a relationship. Domestic violence includes behaviors that physically harm, cause fear, prevent a partner from doing what they wish, or force them to behave in ways they do not want.

This morning the Fort Drum Public Affairs team took on the Purple-Up challenge! Thanks to the Fort Drum Family Advocacy Program for organizing this event and challenging us to raise awareness around this issue of Domestic Violence and its many negative impacts. We are united to end family violence!
Here is a great article that can provide you with some additional resources.
Bridgit McGlaughlin thank you for hosting the book club this morning! I had a wonderful time and will definitely be back. :-)
I'm assuming book club is cancelled for today since post is closed? Please post when the next one will be :-)

Because the kids will let you know when it is time to wake up...don't worry they will.
