6. Plan Ahead

Make sure that everything that your family needs while you are away has been put into place, purchased or arranged.

Your kids will start to feel anxious if Mum isnโ€™t there to do certain things for them, so reassure them that things like a birthday present for a childโ€™s party has been purchased in advance and their sports clothes have arrived on time for their big game so that they donโ€™t have to worry that somebody else might not know how to do it just like their mom did. It will also make it easier to cope with being away from the family if you arenโ€™t stressing about these things.
