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.
