Parenting at a Distance
Staying in touch with the children who live in your heart but not in your home.
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.

Marriage Encounter, is a weekend away from home, family and
responsibilities where in a comfortable, secluded environment a couple is
guided in the discovery of new techniques of communicating and sharing with
one another. It is not a retreat, but it is a program designed to give couples
the opportunity to examine their lives together, their weaknesses and strong
points, their attitudes toward each other and toward their families. Couples
are given the opportunity to look at themselves, privately with their partner
in an honest, face-to-face, heart-to-heart encounter.
Engaged Encounter, is a weekend experience designed to help couples
prepare personally and as a couple for marriage. The focus is on the marriage,
not on the wedding. "A wedding is a day ... a marriage is a lifetime." Couples
are shown communication and decision-making techniques they can use throughout
their lifetime together. Engaged Encounter is specifically designed for quiet
reflection and discussion by each couple. It is a positive, simple, common-sense
experience between two people who are either seriously considering engagement,
engaged or recently married. At no time will the couple be asked to share
their private experiences with the group.
