I have 2 children ages 8 and 10. Dad being deployed for 13 months. My son is having a very difficult time. I don't know how to help him. Please help me.

Keep the child informed.  And let help you as well to make house hold desicions.  Make him feel as if he is a man of the house not just another child.  He is special, his father is  a hero  and hero kids are the best they grow up to be hero's.  Best of luck to you.

Hi Alison, nice to meet you. My husband Karl is full time Army Gaurd. We live in McMinnville Oregon. Any information you have would help. Thank you.

Ms. Keri,

I am the School Liaison at Davis-Monthan AFB. I know that militaryonesource.com has all kinds of great resources for you and you can call at any time and speak to a counselor. What branch of the service are you, maybe I can help connect you with your local installation resources.
