In our military lifestyle, absence is hard on the parents as well as kids.  As much as we wish this was not the reality, it just is.  So we have to make the best of it.

Fathers are an important influence in their children’s’ lives. Being apart for special days and achievements is hard on everyone, but it can make you realize how special it is to have everyone together. Even though Dad works odd hours and misses celebrations, this does not mean that kids have any less of a bond with their dads.

The HUN is proud to be a supporter of “The Dove Men + Care “Mission: Care”. Dove Men + Care is partnering with OPERATION HOMEFRONT to bring home 300 service members (dads and moms) this Father’s Day to spend quality time with their families.

You can help bring troops home by purchasing any Dove Men+Care products including deodorants, face and body washes, and hair care products that are perfect for any care package to Dad! Visit “The Dove Men + Care “Mission: Care” to leave a message for the troops and learn more about this great campaign. See below for details on how to enter the Dove giveaway!

 

Here are some fun ways you can include Dad in a Father’s Day celebration if he is away from home:

1. Call him- if possible pick  up the phone and call. Skype- video chatting is a great way to see and show off any new skills the kids may have.

2.  Get the kids to make a video for Dad – make it fun! This can be done over a few weeks or in just a day. Make them rehearse and really put thought into what they are doing. They will really enjoy the process and it will bring you together as a family. Getting them to really think about what Dad would like to see and brainstorming with each other means that they are having quality time around their father even in his absence. You can also upload the video to a video card, and make sure to  upload the children’s artwork or photos too.

3. Celebrate on a different day. If Dad knows he will be away for Father’s Day, celebrate when you all can be together. Declare a date on the calendar when you know Dad will be home, or leave it as vague as the first Sunday Dad is back. But you can still dedicate Father’s Day to their Dad. Use Father’s Day as an intensive planning session. Work out menus, have practice runs at making Dad’s favorite foods – so they will be perfect when the day comes. Play the games that might be good to play with Dad when he is back, so you can choose which ones to play in what order. This is all very intense family time around Dad, even if he isn’t there. That way the kids get two days to celebrate their father instead one one!
