Is it possible for a woman to be a good mother via long distance parenting?

    Yes a mother can be a good parent from a long distance. There are a variety of circumstances could lead a mother being a part from her child. Let's say she is defending her country in the military. What if she is on a contract job that is paying her a crazy amount of money that could really secure the child's future? Its about being the best parent you can be for your child the best way you know how. People seem not to be able to think outside of what they have been taught what a mother is supposed to be.

    Thank you for this story. I am currently in this situation. My son is in GA and I'm in OH. I had to create the long distance separation to settle the outright tension between his father and I. I do love my child more than I love myself and I had to leave to make sure that my child didn't witness his father's rage. I know that he still hears the snide remarks and the like, but he isn't a witness to the arguing and disrespect. And to walk away from your child on a day-to-day takes more from a woman than I think many realize. I'd rather my child be happy and adjusted than to be pretending everything's alright and walking into a war zone at home, just to comform to what people who don't live the life we were living think we should be. Again, thank you.

    I feel bad for the kids because living mothers who aren't in the home typically result in damaged children. I wish there were some way that we could round up all of those kids and brand them as unfit for social interaction, like the "untouchables" in India.
