Activities:

Joke swap

If you are apart from your kids because of work, travel, or access limitations, try this activity: ask your kids to send you a joke via text or email every day you are apart, and in turn send them a “Dad joke”.

Tips:

Offset the disappointment of missing important dates

If you are going to miss an important date in your child’s life such as a birthday or sports game, plan ahead how to celebrate at another time.
