Abstract: 'Waiting for Daddy: Rose's story' explores the experiences of a two-year-old, Rose, whose father leaves for military deployment with the Australian Defence Force. The storybook covers themes of physical and emotional responses to parental separation, barriers to understanding the concepts of deployment, support for the family and communication. This is a research-based storybook for young children, with research information in the back for parents, educators and family workers. It was produced from research data and findings as part of a PhD study entitled 'Young children's experiences and understandings of parental deployment within an Australian Defence Force family'. The eBook is available free to parents, children, educators and family workers in partnership with the Defence Community Organisation and the Department of Defence in the hope to make research accessible to the public and create impact from research.
