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.

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 -with their children and with or without their significant other, you need to know you're not alone.

They may be taking advantage of you without even meaning to or maybe they don't care that they are using you and your resources up.

This site has great information to help you. They even have a contract for you and your adult children to sign that sets the rules and obligations that the adult child is expected to be responsible for.

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.




Victims of Child Abuse Laws
    VOCAL is a child advocacy and family rights organization that provides information, research data, emotional support, and an "experts" referral service for family members who are victims of abuse or have been abused by "system professionals". As a non-profit corporation run by unpaid volunteers and is supported by donations from its members and other concerned citizens. A group of caring, responsible parents who have been victimized by child abuse laws that enable "system professionals" to ignore the Constitutional rights of American citizens. We are doctors, lawyers, ministers, laymen and "Pro-Family" politicians who Value Our Children and Laws, and are dedicated to changing laws which enable "system professionals" to violate the Constitutional rights of American citizens. We are against those who victimize children and adults by making anonymous, malicious and false allegations of child abuse. VOCAL is against removing children from a home without court order because mental, physical and sexual abuse often occurs in foster care homes. VOCAL is against individuals who abuse their positions of authority and cause irreparable damage to families based on hearsay allegations. VOCAL is for higher standards of education for HRS caseworkers, Child Protection Team Members, and Guardian-Ad-Litem volunteers. VOCAL is for working with other pro-family organizations and encourages the active pursuit of common goals. VOCAL believes the family is the foundation of society, and any activity which weakens families is a threat to our entire society. Strengthening family unity makes for a stronger America.

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.
