Parenting at a Distance   

As a bipolar mother I will never have custody of my children. That is the hardest thing I had to accept. Parenting at a Distance helps me send them activities that will help them remember me with some happy memories. I am getting better and they are getting older. Some day there will be an opportunity for us to sit together. I will tell them how much joy I found in putting together their projects and I hope they will be able to tell me how much they enjoyed my efforts. Really a good book. Meghan Morris --Letter to the publisher

Parenting at a Distance, has been a great resource for me. At first the mother of my son didn't want to help me communicate with the kids. The fact that I had a plan for contact with them and was consistent won her over. I think she gets as much a kick out of the seeing what will be in the next package as the boys do. Ken Richards --Weekend Fathers Newsletter. Product Description
When the children in your heart don't live in your home, Parenting at a Distance offers you interesting ways to stay in touch and keep the lines of communication open.

Mothers Against Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy Allegations 
1407 Ranch Drive, Private, Senatobia, MS 38668
    M.A.M.A. was started in response to the fast growing number of false allegations of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP). Parents are being accused of making their own children ill. Increasingly, families across America, Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand are being destroyed by doctors and other professionals making unwarranted allegations against desperate mothers of chronically/critically ill children. The motives of the accusers can be multi-faceted. Often, allegations are used by a doctor or institution to evade a medical malpractice lawsuit, or to simply rid themselves of a troublesome mom when unable to diagnose a child's condition. "MSBP experts" are career building at the expense of children! Increasingly, this "diagnosis" is being deliberately misused by opposing parents in child custody suits. Many nurses and even doctors have been accused. SIDS deaths are the new frontier of prosecution.  (601)562-7714
