Military kid says, "Why do you have to go?"

My grandpa is in the Army. He has to go help people on the other side of the world. I don't want him to go. What if he forgets all about me? What if Grammy falls down or the car won't start? Who will stay home with me if I get sick? I want him to stay here with me.

Tip:

Ask your parent or caregiver about emergency plans if something goes wrong at home while your loved one is gone. Tell them that you want to be a part of the plan and need a job to do, too.
