Day 346: Parting is Sweet Sorrow

It’s the sad truth that we as fathers often have to leave the home for work or other pursuits. This can cause children a great deal of distress when you were leaving, and so it is good to come up with strategies to ease the parting blow.

You might want to have something that comforts the child like a blanket of stuffed animal they can play with my daddy is away. You might have a picture of you and your child that they can have when you are away.

If they have a particularly bad reaction when you go, you might try having something to distract them in a different room when you’re actually leaving. And don’t forget to tell them that you love them before you go. When you leave the house, you just never know what’s going to happen.
