The resource “Parenting from a Distance” is a guide aimed at separated parents who live away from their children. It is also useful for those who are the primary caregivers. The guide’s purpose is to help parents:
- Become more involved in their children’s lives.
- Build stronger relationships with their children.
- Communicate effectively with the other parent regarding the children.
- Overcome the challenges of maintaining contact from a distance.
The booklet offers advice on focusing on the children rather than the conflict with the ex-partner and stresses the importance of co-parenting effectively. It acknowledges that separation can be a time of conflict, which can be harmful to children and jeopardize the parent-child relationship. It also touches on situations where parents may not be able to maintain a relationship with their children post-separation and suggests seeking professional help.
This guide is a practical tool for parents navigating the complexities of raising children when they are not physically present all the time. It offers a compassionate approach to building and maintaining a strong, loving relationship with children despite the distance.
