Editorial Reviews

A Customer
This is an excellent book for long distance parenting ideas. Some are rather generic, but you can build on those to make them even more special. I recommend this book to any parent who is away or going to be away from their children for any length of time at all.
I was so impressed that I used this as a recommended book of the week in my [...] newsletter [...]!
Diana Mercer
In our mobile society, we deal with more and more move-away cases every year. As if it wasn't complicated enough, the law differs from state to state and changes all the time within each state. This little book is a terrific starting place for trying to figure out how to stay close with your children even though they may be miles away.
Gina Holland
Great tips on how to communicate with our children... George Newman has put together a great book for us, so that times like these can be easier and fun for our children and us. He lets us know that no matter how far we are from our kids, we can reassure them, that we can love and care for them. They don't have to be a statistic whose parents never bother to see them after a divorce. I give it a "thumbs up."
