When our parents are gone, we may look and say we don’t miss them, but we really do. My mom is actually in Ecuador right now visiting my Abuelo, and is getting home this Friday. ( The day after she comes home, we are going on a plane AGAIN.)
Whenever my mom is gone, I always miss her so much, and I can’t sleep super well. I always gets kind of upset. There are a lot of different feelings we can have when our parents are on a trip.
Kids like me and my sister miss them, and might even have trouble sleeping. My older sister sometimes gets upset, and gets worried. Kids like one of my sister’s friends ( she shall remain nameless ) doesn’t get worried or upset that much. This is because one of her parents is gone a lot, and she has experience so she knows how to deal with it.
Most kids want to go with their parent(s) but they already bought the ticket for THEM SELF. One thing that really ticks me off when my mom is gone is that my mom usually goes places with a time difference. In Ecuador, it’s 3 hours forward from where I live in California. I try to facetime her at 5:00 pm HERE but in ECUADOR it’s already 8:00 pm.
So just so you know parents your kids might really seem like they don’t really feel sad that you’re gone but they either really do miss you, or they actually don’t.
