Children are often the most impacted by the lengthy separation and op-tempo of military duty. Not only do military children endure the duty-related absence of one of the most important people in their lives, they may also feel the impact of additional stressors affecting their parents.
The ASYMCA of Hampton Roads and military spouse-owned company, Little Bug are here to help!
Little Bug is a stuffed animal…with the best kind of stuffing! These animals have a pocket where parents can put a shirt, or article of clothing into the back of the stuffed animal, making the animal smell just like their child’s loved one! Make deployments easier by assuring your child that their loved one is never more than a snuggle away.
