Using Television to Keep Connected

Tsion and her mother live about ten hours apart from each other, but that doesn’t stop them from being close. In fact, it has allowed them to be creative in how they keep connected.

“I have a great relationship with my mom,” Tsion said. “She is a school teacher, and I think that makes her more understanding. She is always very nurturing, and she usually plays ‘good guy’ when Dad plays ‘bad guy.’”

In addition to talking on the phone at least twice a week, Tsion and her mother have developed some unique ways to keep their relationship strong.
