Some of these ideas will also apply to men who are separated from their children by a military deployment or divorce.
1- Tell your children about why you’re leaving — what you hope to accomplish and the bigger-picture benefits it will bring to clients, consumers, or families.
2- Leave your family members small gifts or notes of encouragement that they’ll find when you’re gone.
3- Put some planning into your re-entry back home. The first few minutes after you walk in the house can make a big difference. (And save discipline issues and bills until later.)
