Kids having behavioral issues since he left to be a trucker
My husband and I have a 4 year old son and a 2 1/2 year old daughter. They are both exceptionally bright, and have never had any sort of behavioral issues- until my husband left 2 months ago to be a truck driver.
Since then they have started hitting, having problems at school, crying ALL DAY and causing all kinds of problems. I've grounded them, thrown toys away, and we've been trying to do more fun stuff when they aren't having bad days as an attempt to reinforce the good behavior.
My husband doesn't get home time for another 2 weeks (it will be nearly 3 months since he left) and I'm just crying I'm so overwhelmed. I see my babies hurting and I don't know how to help them.
He drives overnight and sleeps during the day, so we only video chat once a week, for maybe 10 minutes.
I know someone out there has gone through this with small children and I'm praying someone can offer me some advice to help me and my kids get through this major adjustment in our lives.
