My first born is leaving for boot camp in a little under a month. Me and him are super close and he has never been away from me for more that 5 days. I am worried that he or i might become depressed. i know that he will probably be too busy but still wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

Thank you. I think that is whats making it harder on me. I think i know deep down he will be okay its just the realization that my baby has become a responsible young man. i raised him to be strong and responsible.

Just be aware that he will not be able to contact you at first. The military restricts communication, because the recruits need to focus on their assignments. You need to be strong, and know that he is an adult now and will need independence.
