Dad is depolyed. My 2 and 4.5 year old girls are handelling it fine now. Except recently my oldest doesn't want to talk to Dad when she can. (Which is several times a week and video chat weekly) Then after he is gone she crys she didn't get to talk to him. I know she is a perfectionsit and this is part of it. But how do I help her to talk to Dad, so she and her Dad are not so unhappy and frustratted. She makes pictures for him daily, so he won't forget her. They send letter back and forth. They exchanged gifts before they left. How do I help her accept that talking on the phone and via video chat is all she can do until he comes home?
