Military kid says, "Dad's home, so why is everyone so mad?"

"I thought it would be perfect. Dad's finally home. I'm SO happy. But now everyone in my family gets upset all the time. I get into trouble for nothing. I hate being at home."

Tip:

Lots of kids say the hardest part is AFTER mom or dad get home from a deployment. Lots of families have to get used to each other again. Ask your parents if you can have a family meeting. Talk about how things are different now with your mom or dad home.
