Parenting at a Distance 

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

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.

Systametic Training for Effective Parenting  
    I want to tell you about a program called S.T.E.P. Systametic Training for Effective Parenting. We here in Macomb County Michigan are lucky to have this program offered throughout the County. It is in part funded by the Macomb County Office of Substance Abuse and through federal, state and local funding. When my wife and I took the class about 5 years ago I had heard good things about it and I was interested in learning what I can to better help my children. I didn't realize it at first but I was feeling very angry at the leader and thinking "What could she possibly tell me on how to raise my children? I am a good person I will do a good job in raising my own children!" but as class went on I found out that this is not what it was about. It is about choices and looking at things in a different way then what most of us are used to. If you live in Macomb County Michigan call.     (810) 412-0088

    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.
