A family care plan is not only important but mandatory for single and dual military parents. Many times, military personnel will meet with a member of the Family Support Center to create a family care plan.

- A single parent with limited extended family
Create a template for a family care plan that you might use with one of the parents listed.
- What elements are necessary as part of a family care plan?
