I’m starting my first ever series!
As most of you know, we are currently in the midst of a deployment. Michael has been in Baghdad since the week before Christmas. It is a six month deployment, putting him home around the last week of June (give or take…). This means we are half-way through and I have acquired quite a list of handy tips and ideas that have helped my family in preparing for and coping with this separation.
I have some really great ideas and tips in store for you (even if you aren’t a military family)! I hope you’ll join me each Friday as I discuss topics such as talking with your children about what is happening, how you can help them cope with missing their parent, activities to get involved in, ways to be involved with the parent who is away and several other ideas/tips.
My goal is to help you set your family up for and experience a successful deployment/separation.
The topic for next Friday will be all about how to discuss deployment with your children.
