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.

    We are a large body of parents both intact and "non intact" against Grandparent Visitation. These grandparents that sue for the rights to visit their grandchildren are using these statutes to gain control of our families with devastating results. Our children are suffering from this devastation under the threat of putting their parents in jail if these visits do not occur. If you are being sued by grandparent's, please visit our web site above. Every State Supreme Court challenge occurring today is being overturned. Grandparents who sue are making no lasting impact on their grandchildren by challenging their adult children (parents) in court.

If you are in the middle of a divorce and have questions regarding visitation with your child it is important to speak with a legal profession. For further information you may contact a family law attorney who can assist you with your family law matter.

Visitation will be decided by a court order. The parents may have joint custody and visitation with their child dependent on what is in the child’s best interest. In addition, once visitation is determined for both parties we will be able to determine child support. Child support will be dependent upon the amount of time both parties spend with the child.

The Hands-On Guide to Surviving Adult Children Living at Home

If you're faced with the frustration of dealing with adult children moving home -- or kids who never left it-- even though they are in their late 20s, 30s, or even 40s, you need to know you're not alone.
Many move home with their children and significant others.
The truth is nearly 25 million adult children are living with their parents in the U.S. alone. A recent Canadian census showed that, of kids aged 20 to 29, 44% live with their parents!
While it's nice to think that families with adult children living with parents can always get along like they do on TV, the fact is that having adult children return home -- also called boomerang kids -- can put a ton of stress on you and your partner.

"What can I do if one of my parents is breaking a court order?" and "How can I feel comfortable in two homes?"

9903 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 267, Beverly Hills, CA 90212
    A nonprofit corporation dedicated to protecting and promoting the civil and inalienable human rights of non-custodial parents and their families. Divorce and child custody actions are not fair for the children or the non-custodial parent. We believe that many aspects of the current and proposed laws concerning visitation, custody and child support enforcement violate the constitutional rights of all non-custodial parents. We also believe that it is in the "best interest of the child" to have equal access to both parents, and that shared custody arrangements that specify 50/50 joint physical custody should be the presumption in Family Law. We are not affiliated with any other organization or group. Our membership lists are kept strictly confidential and are never sold or rented for any reason.

    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.

    A safe, permanent home isn't something a child should only dream about. Almost half a million children in the United States live in foster care, meant to be a temporary haven.
