The best thing you can do is care! I know when I came home from France I had hundreds of pictures
and I wanted to show them all to my mom and tell her about everything I learned! She was enthused
for a while but soon she just brushed it off and told me do my chores. Even if you don’t see the
significance of dozens of pictures of old buildings or sprawling landscapes they mean the world your
child. Be interested in your child and ask about their experiences and what they learned.
I know for you, everything has been the same, but for you child a lot has changed. Going abroad is a
life-altering occurrence so when your child gets back, don’t expect them to be the exact same
person. I would give them an “adjustment period” of a week or two for them to come to terms with
their experiences before they can resume their usual mode of behavior.
