Whenever daddy/mommy are leaving for deployment/training/anything else how do you prepare the kids. My husband moved to Korea and our kids were much younger and it didn't really bother them too much. Well in a couple months daddy will be leaving for 3 weeks for selection and then after that he will be in and out through out the year depending on training schedules. So I'm wondering when do you start to prepare them and how in the world do you prepare them? I know its only 3 weeks but the first time he left once we got home from Korea he was gone for exactly 1 week and my son acted like it was a month! I have never seen him so upset. BTW he is 5 years old and will be 6 whenever daddy leaves again.
