Both studies focused on military children ages 11 to 17. “We had a very strong relationship between the caregiver’s mental health and their ability to cope as well as the ability for their children to...

In October, Maj. Eric Choate, an Air Operations Squadron Det. 1 delivery control officer, deployed leaving behind his wife, Dorothy, and their 7-year-old son, Philip.

    The Dummies are not taking the election loss at all easily as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, “How are you coping?” It might have gone easier for the DUmmies if they didn’t act like the Coyote gleefully opening the Acme Co. exit polls package on Election Day which led them to gloatingly believe victory was imminent. But as in the cartoon, the Acme Co. package exploded in the DUmmie Coyote’s as the Republican Road Runner zoomed off into the distance to the victory line. BEEP! BEEP! As usual, the DUmmie comments coping with their loss are in...

(AP) - Americans found ways to channel their anger over the Sept. 11 attacks and dealt more effectively with their emotions than people did after President Kennedy's assassination, researchers have found.
