My daughter Caitlyn loves her daddy, she has always been and always will be a daddys girl, so when daddy isn't around she is not a happy camper. My husband has recently deployed, and it has been hard on all of us, especially Caitlyn. He has only been gone a week, and she is starting to get really depressed. She doesn't eat, or play, or anything. I'm lucky to get her to eat atleast once a day, she lays in bed all day, not sleeping but just laying there. She cries, but it's not a normal kid cry, she lays in bed and softly cries all day. I try to talk to her or be there for her but she doesn't want me, she wants her daddy, and I can't bring her daddy home. I feel horrible seeing her this upset but there is nothing I can do to fix it, as a mother I just wanna make it better and this is beyond my power. Should I take her to a therapist? I don't even know where to begin.
