Years ago the family support center, we got this magazine called dad's at a distance.  It was geared towards military families or families who are separated by miles.  Well, I cannot find something similar to this.  It had ideas of things to do for dad's to be more involved.  Does anyone have anything that they use as a guidance or reference?

Lots of google hits for "Dads at a distance" (no apostrophe).

Thanks...  Yeah, that is the only magazine that I have found.  I was wondering if there was anything similar to this magazine.  I think it is a one issue type of thing. 

 

I have recently come to a place in my life where my husband needs to one initating a relationship with his DD.  I have been forcing it(him to do things for her out of the goodness of his heart) for all these years, but it is coming b/w me and my kids and me and him now.  And for my own sanity, he still needs to be a great father to her like he is to ours.

 

He has done everything in this magazine and it worked out great for them.  I even got them the American Girl book, Dads and their Daughters or something like that.  They had so much fun with that as well.  He is just a man and doesn't realize how important these days are in a little girl's life.  I am just looking to find him another one for them to use, b/c it worked out so well in the past.

 

I can't "do" it for him, but I can find a "cool" magazine - that he can read in the bathroom or something - that might help him think of things to do for her.  I just can't be the "nagging" wife about it anymore.  But a few little "new magazines" in the bathroom couldn't hurt...
