there isnt much you can do. you can simply try to explain to him where dads going, keep pictures of him around the house, or a home video of times they've spent together. it'll remind him of the times they had and make it a lil easier on him. maybe it wont affect him to much, but if he spends ALL of his time with dad, then ofcourse it will affect him. when your husbands leaves for the navy, it affects everyone in the house. everyone handles it differently. figuring out what works when he is gone is what your going to have to do. =/ different things work for different people. it wont be easy in the begining, but eventually you do get used to it.
