||Regardless of the reason, when one parent is separated from a child, it can cause a great disruption in their young lives. Children do not always understand why on parent must have supervised visits. |
What they remember is that one of their parents is no longer there. With the creation of the internet and expanding technology, parents in these situations may now be afforded innovative and creative opportunities to remain a larger part of their children's lives. This is often called 'Virtual Parent-Time'.
Certainly, connecting with your child through a computer does not replace personal contact. However, it serves as an effective bridge for parents when frequent personal contact is not possible.
With regard to supervised visits, it also serves as a safe medium where contact can be innocuously monitored if necessary.
Virtual visitation may reduce the psychological impact of separation on a child. Most psychologists will tell you that children often blame themselves when one parent is absent from the family unit.
They experience significant separation anxiety and may even internalize that anxiety as guilt or feelings of abandonment. These children can experience behavioral challenges throughout their childhood.
