A new study suggests children with parents or caregivers currently serving in the military are more likely to engage in risky behavior. 

Researchers found that military-connected youth reported more incidents of violence, substance abuse and harassment than their non-military connected peers. 

Stressors such as separation from parents, frequent relocation and worry about future deployments are believed to play a big role in these behaviors. 

According to experts, more needs to be done to offer support and promote resilience among military children who are struggling.
