How can I help the kids cope with my military husband’s absence?
Q: My husband is in the military and currently overseas for an extended period of time. How do I help my son, age 5½, and my daughter, age 1, deal with this separation? We keep in touch via the Internet and web cams, but do you have any other suggestions that might help them both?
A: A lot of parents have the same question, so I have written an article on this web site about how a parent’s military absence affects children. I suggest you take a look at it for ideas to help your children at this difficult time.
