My son is unhappy at his new advanced training assignment.

 After talking with my son, I am so upset!  He just got out of basic and is now at advanced training.  He hates it.  Is this common?  Has anyone else experienced this?  Does it get better?

When my husband went to his trainings after bootcamp he never complained to me about hating it. He talked about not liking a few people but never said he hatec the training.

What does he hate about it?

After my son adjusted to not being at basic and being at tech school, he really liked it. Once he got to Vandenberg he said it took him a little bit to get used to not being yelled at and told what to do all the time. He didn't hate his tech school at all though so I don't know. Your son probably just needs a little adjustment period.

He needs to man up.  It isn't summer camp.  My son didn't enjoy basic or tech school, but it didn't upset me.  I knew he would make it through.

 This is the hard truth.  Everyone has adjustments and transitions to make when they start a new job or school.  It isn't high school where you can drop a class or change a teacher.  Life is always going to send him challenges and he needs to accept that and make the best of it.

He will get through.  The military isn't always the most fun thing.  Good luck to him.

 Is it the schooling itself or the strictness?

He may hate his first duty station too. *shrugs* It's life. It's only for a short time, he'll get through it.
