How can I maintain my relationship with my child when we live apart?

Plan and Budget Visits

BUDGET FOR VISITS. Regardless of the reason for the distance it is your responsibility to make sure enough money is allotted for gas, plane, bus or train fares to see your children. Plan on a specific date and set money aside to cover the expenses. Stick to the date planned if at all possible. Even when your children say they understand, there is still a feeling of rejection regardless of how good the "excuse" is when a visit it canceled.
