Dogs don't have a concept of distance association. Skype, Facetime etc won't mean anything to them.
Your new pup won't bond with your specific kids without consistent physical interaction over time, but finding another local family or bunch of children with good dog manners to get the new pup appropriately socialized around children is an excellent idea!

Long distance bonding?
Ive been thinking on getting another puppy, but one thing I wonder about is this, my grandson, 7 months old lives in another state. They are going to plan another child soon. I am only able to go see them like once every 2 or 3 months right now, it's a 9 hour drive. So any suggestions on getting a pup used to being around children, and to make a bond with grand kids like the would if they lived here? We have neighbor kids but don't really hang around our house. When they are older I plan to have them come stay a couple weeks during summers and before they start school. Any others with long distance grand kids? Thanks!
