dc.description.abstractThrough a qualitative interview study, the researcher investigated the experiences of high ability male dependents from Navy families and how these experiences were perceived to have influenced the male dependent’s social, emotional and cognitive development. Findings indicated that high ability male dependents did not perceive that the Navy lifestyle had negatively influenced their development. Participation in sports was credited as a very positive influence in helping male dependents make smooth transitions into new schools after relocations, as was a positive attitude toward change and challenge on the part of the Navy family. Themes include high expectations and goals for achievement, adapting to change, participation in sports, and pride in the Navy lifestyle. Recommendations for parents, teachers and counselors working with high ability males from military families are provided, and implications for future research involving military dependents are highlighted.
