Family Finances Series: Separation & Single Parenting in the Military
Tuesday Jul 10, 2018 at 11:00 am-12:30 pm EDTFree
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
For many service members with families and children, it can be a difficult balance between responsibilities to their families and to the military. Separation and single parenting can make this balance even more difficult, leaving service members and their family members shouldering even more responsibilities than before. During this 90-minute webinar, Dr. Mixon and Dr. Gillen will discuss both the emotional and financial impacts of separation and single parenting in the military.
