When my husband comes home from working out of town, a month at a time out, 6 days home my ten year old son gets so sad when its time for his Dad to go back. It breaks my heart to see him cry so much. I just want to cry with him but I put on a brave face and offer to buy him something or have sleep ovesr with his friends. He even has missed school because he so upset. Does this happen to anyone or is it just us? What would you do if it did? Are we causing life long physiological problems? Is buying his happyness wrong? My husband has always worked out of town. So its not like its a new thing. Will it ever stop?
