Parenting From a Distance
This issue of Zero to Three focuses on situations in which parents and children experience prolonged or repeated separations and on how to support emotional connections during these stressful circumstances. As described in the articles in this issue, parent and child separation can occur for a number of reasons, such as parental separation and divorce, hospitalization, incarceration, foster care, and military deployment or other work-related relocation. Whether family separations are short- or long-term, voluntary or forced, the circumstances of the separation will have an impact on how children cope, as well as the types of resources available to help.
