    Transitions with a traveling husband

    My husband travels internationally for his work. The days just before he leaves and right when he returns are hard. Can you suggest some strategies to help us negotiate the transitions?

    #generationhome,

    Great question, my husband travels internationally as well. We have traveled with him for most of his journeys. However there are times where he needs to go alone.
    We are very open with the children as far his his schedule goes. The few days before he leaves we try to do something fun together as a family. He tries to spend as much one on one time with each child as well.
    When he returns we have a nice family meal and hang out together as a family, whether its watching a movie or having a favorite meal together.
    We also try to skype once a week while he is gone.
    I hope this helps with transitioning in the future.
