Deployment ideas for kids- cover a cereal box with paper, and attach it to the wall and kids can draw pictures or write notes to Daddy. Whenever you mail out something to him, collect whatever is in the box too. It's a great way for kids to sort thru the emotions of deployment.

Persuasive writing: write a letter from the perspective of a truffula tree, Persuade the Onceler to stop cutting you down. Tell him how it makes you feel and why you are important.
'MY HUSBAND WON'T TALK WITH ME!' What do you do? Many men who shut down when asked personal questions about their feelings do so because they don’t know the answer and they feel stupid and shamed. Instead of reflecting why they don’t know or figuring out how to find out, they lash out and blame the person who made them feel that way. -Leslie Vernick

DIY gifts for him or her! I just made this for my boyfriend for Christmas. Paint a box, print out some pictures to fit in it (mine are all Instagram posts) and then write the date and a memory or comment on the back of each picture.

I glued the heart on top and added our first initials :)

ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE UP - I know things haven’t worked out the way you hoped that they would, but does this mean you give up on your vision ever coming to pass? Do you give up and walk away from the things I promised you? Did you really want it? If so, why would you stop at the first stumbling block that gets in your way?
