Dads at a Distance

with Ron Deal | March 6, 2020

Many fathers who are physically distant from their children want to remain emotionally engaged. But how? First, remind your kids of your presence by giving them a copy of pictures and videos to remember the good times. Second, keep your communication alive. Write a text on Monday, make a video call on Tuesday, drop an Instagram on Thursday, and show up on Friday for your visitation. When you are together get out of the house. Take a walk, play a game, run errands. Make the most of your time.
