DUARTE, Ana Santos; FRANCISCO, Rita; RIBEIRO, Maria Teresa  e  SANTOS, Renato Pessoa dos. Daily Life, Communication and Affections of Siblings and Parents of Military Service Members in Mission. Paidéia (Ribeirão Preto) [online]. 2020, vol.30, e3002.  Epub 03-Fev-2020. ISSN 1982-4327.

The Portuguese military in mission state that parents and siblings are a fundamental support; however, research is very scarce in this area. This study aimed to investigate the impact of a mission on the daily life, communication and emotional responses of 227 relatives of 92 military personnel, 114 siblings (M age = 29.14, SD = 9.81) e 113 parents (M age = 55.06, SD = 9.12). A questionnaire related to the mission was applied, focusing on changes in the daily life, social support, communication and advice to other family members; and the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule since receiving notification. The results revealed that the parents suffered more with the notification and that there were changes in family functioning and in the functional support. Communication with the deployed military service member strengthens family relationships, morale, and well-being. Participants reported emotions of concern and pride, and gave advice based on a positive attitude toward the military and the mission.
