Be Attentive

All families with young children need support to help maintain a safe, stable and nurturing home. For military families with young children, the deployment cycle can be a very trying time. This is why it's important for parents to stay connected to their family, friends and command leadership.
Below are a few suggestions on how communities can offer support without being intrusive:
. Initiate positive conversations with young parents.
. Talk with parents about their hopes and goals for their children.
. Help parents identify their needs.
. Share self-care strategies that you have used when feeling overwhelmed.
. Acknowledge parents' frustrations and recognize their efforts to address the issue.
. Establish and maintain consistent contact with young parents through routine telephone calls, texts or emails.
. Keep a watchful eye on the children in your neighborhood.
. Listen to parents when they tell you about their challenges.
. Keep a watchful eye on babies to ensure that they sleep on their backs and on firm bedding.

JEBLC hosted Pure Praxis at Gator Theater in support of Sexual Assault and Prevention Response Month (SAAPM). Pure Praxis is a social theater group that uses Performance Education Workshops to train and empower service members at military installations worldwide.

Pure Praxis' mission is to promote social change by using live, improvisational theater to re-create difficult real world situations so audiences can rehearse pro-active responses. 'Praxis' is the act of applying, engaging and practicing ideas, which is precisely what makes Pure Praxis different from any other training program on the market. Using a team of skilled and diverse Performance Facilitators and Actor-Advocates, Pure Praxis explores topics that are both complex and sensitive in order to empower audiences to become active bystanders in their own lives. The entirety of every performance is guided by the audiences' participation, thereby making every show unique.
