What happens when a family member is deployed in the military?

Episode 06: Listen to the podcast below!

Daisy McDee’s dad is a Royal Engineer – a soldier in the British Army.

He’s been deployed – that’s when a member of the armed forces is sent abroad to work.

This leads to changes at home for Daisy.

He’ll be away for four months and fifteen days.

Some of the kids at school don’t understand what it’s like when a parent goes away.

It might be even harder for military children because their parent might not be able to tell their family where they are or what they’re doing – that might be top secret!

When there are less hands to help out at home, that can mean that children like Daisy are expected to help out a little bit more.
