Children of Soldiers
A fascinating new documentary, by Gatineau's Claire Corriveau, enters the homes of military families at CFB Petawawa and turns its lens on the children. How do they cope when their father (or mother) is deployed? How do they deal with the long absences, and then the shift in family dynamics when mom or dad returns?
Thursday on the show, Corriveau talked about the intimate process of gaining the trust of these families, and getting the kids to share their thoughts about military life.
