I have a little girl who will be 2 and a half when my husband deploys in a few months. I think she understands daddy has to leave, but i dont think she really gets the concept of how long or why. She is already fussy with him being at NTC for the month and i have no idea how she is going to handle the longer time. Has anyone been throught this with such a young child and how did you explain it to them or keep them busy so they didnt focus on the fact that daddy isnt there when they wake up or to say good night?
