Relocation stress management should consider the effects of relocation on both the spouse and children. Children may feel especially powerless and angry during the relocation as the family has little control over the decision to move. Research shows that the factors affecting adjustment following relocation are frequency and distance of the moves. Military families move more frequently and over longer distances than their civilian counterparts making this a key issue for military families. Positive parent-child relationships, marital satisfaction, and overall parent well-being have shown to act as protective factors against some of these effects.
