Parenting and the Military: The Case of Israel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In the current chapter, we will review the research on three aspects of parenting and the military in Israel: parenting of young soldiers who are performing their compulsory service; career combat offi cers’ military service and its effects on parenting; and the effects of PTSD on parenting. Given the nature of these topics, and due to the major cultural, social, and political differences that exist between Israel and the United States, we wish to fi rst shed light on the unique context in which military life in general and military parenthood in Israel take place.
