Gone are the days of just the good old fashion phone. Generally today most courts allow daily contact between children and parents. Sometimes, that contact may be by phone, skype, email, or other advances in technology. With the advances to technology parents can have a closer and a more effective relationship with the child, even if the child is with the other parent. Many parents have embraced the technology, because not only can they speak to their child, but they can actually see their child via programs such as a Skype. These advances in technology have not only allowed for better relationships, but also sometimes assist in making sure everyone is on the same page.
