Overview

Around the world, whether or not we are at war or involved in a military action, soldiers are deployed to service leaving their families behind. Everyday, children of military personnel are being confronted with the difficulties of having a parent deployed in the service of our country. Children's book author and military brat, Michelle Ferguson-Cohen, has written, "Daddy, you're my hero!" and "Mommy, you're my hero!" to help military and reservist's families speak with children about deployment.

Little Redhaired Girl Publishing, Inc. hears from many educators, parents, psychologists and military FRGs (Family Readiness Groups) who are using the books as a resource to help speak with their children about the deployment of a parent and war in general.

The books address deployment from a child's perspective. They talk about this separation in a simple manner to assure and comfort small children. The books also suggest tips to maintain communication and deal with feelings of helplessness.

"I wrote these books from my heart. I know what it's like to experience what these children are facing," says Ferguson-Cohen. "My own father was deployed in the service of our country many times when I was young."

It was important to the author that children of military personnel see themselves represented in the media and that the message they received was of both "pride and sensitivity". "You should address a child’s fears," she says "But it’s important the message isn’t so dramatic it worries them further. I also wanted to give children permission to be proud of their parents."


About the Author

"Sometimes in the throes of politics, policies and opinions about war, people forget about the children," says Ferguson-Cohen. "This book is a tribute to these families who can't forget. This much-ignored community, who need and deserve our compassion and support."

Ferguson-Cohen is the daughter of a retired Army General who served two tours in Vietnam, as well as the granddaughter of a soldier killed in action during WWII. After a long career in the music industry, Ferguson-Cohen has now settled into a life of writing. Though still a proud southerner, she lives with her husband in Brooklyn, NY.

excellent tools for parents "left-behind" to use comforting and helping their children find ways to make deployment seem less frightening.
Colorado Springs Gazette
As a proud Army brat whose father served two tours in Vietnam, she (Ferguson-Cohen) knew what it was like to worry about a parent fighting in a far-off land.

As if it isn't enough ... we have to prepare our children. Two new books from (mf-c) are available to help.

    So helpful in talking to kids about deployment

    Reading this brought tears to my eyes. I think this book is truly wonderful. It is right to the point and easy for children to understand. Thanks so much writing a book that would help our children share their feelings about what they are experiencing. This book makes a great leadway into getting kids to talk about how they might be feeling or the questions they have.
