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 the 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.

      DAD-to-DAD is an organization for Dads who stay at-home with their children. DAD-to-DAD was founded by Curtis Cooper of Atlanta, Georgia in 1995. The group, first called "Mr. Mom", was started with only a few Dads in the surrounding Atlanta area. When Curtis first became an At-Home Dad, he tried joining groups of At-Home Moms in their playgroups. He was looking for a group that could help meet a certain need all of us Full-Time Dads have - support, networking and a playgroup for the kids. Despite his attempts to "fit-in", Curtis still felt something needed to be done to pull together other At-Home Dads. So, he formed "Mr. Mom". After some discussion about the name, it was unanimously decided to change the name of the organization to DAD-to-DAD. The organization has grown by leaps & bounds and has even gone international with chapters all over North America and in other countries as well.

    2922 North 7th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85013
      Gambling, for most people, is a recreational activity. However, for an estimated 2 to 4% of the general population, gambling results in an addiction. Compulsive gambling is a progressive disease, much like an addiction to alcohol or drugs. In many cases, the gambling addiction is hidden until the gambler cannot function without gambling, and he/she begins to exclude all other activities. Not all compulsive gamblers show the same signs and symptoms of addiction, there are differences in gender, age or cultural backgrounds, but most will:

      Use gambling as a coping strategy called Escape/Relief to mask underlying emotional pain.
      Rely on the excitement to make themselves feel good.
      Wager higher amounts to win back their losses.
      Believe that they can get out of debt with a big win.
      Hide their gambling from family and friends and lie about money.
      Find the financial problem becomes an emotional one.
      Eventually become emotionally, mentally and physically distressed.
