Jason is in the Army National Guard and, like many military families, his wife, Ronnie, and their seven-year-old son, Elijah, struggle with him being gone for long periods of time. Jason admits that he is so disconnected from his son, that he often feels like a stranger in his own home and it terrifies him. Here, Roland Warren, president of the National Fatherhood Initiative, offers Jason advice on how to strengthen his bond with Elijah.
