MY SON IS 33 YRS. OLD AND HAS A FAMILY NOW. HE CALLS US ALMOST EVERYDAY. I AM JUST WONDERING IF OTHER PARENTS' CHILDREN ARE GETTING AS MANY CALLS AS WE ARE. I LOVE TO TALK TO HIM THOUGH...HE TALKS MORE NOW THAN HE EVER DID WHEN HE WAS AT HOME. HE DOESN'T LIVE FAR AWAY EITHER, SO THAT DOESN'T COME INTO PLAY WITH HOW OFTEN HE CALLS - BECAUSE HE SEES US REGULARLY.

    My children range from preschool to 3rd grade so when they call me it's either from the bathtub asking for a drying towel or from the kitchen wanting seconds or some juice. Sorry, I'm not a big help but mine just aren't grown yet! : )

    My kids are still young so the answer I picked is what I'm hoping for when they become adults and live on their own. I guess that tells about the bond you have with your children- they'd wanna call just to say hi / see how you're doing or simply to share their day with you. that'd be nice... (sigh).

    Are we as adult children supposed to call our parents every time? I moved away 6 years ago and my mom pissed me off one day on the phone and didn't speak to her for 3 months. I finally gave in and called and got this whole "WHY HAVEN'T YOU CALLED IN 3 MONTHS" speech...is it always the childs responsibility?!?

    I dont have kids... and its too expensive calling my parents, especially since if I call my mom then I have to call my dad too and my aunt and grandpa... I can never just call one, and I dont think Id be able to either. I do email and talk to them online somewhat often though.

    Actually my children are 6months, 5yr, 7yr. They only call when they are at my mother's. And that's when they want a new toy or they want to stay longer.

    he'll come back around! when my youngest first went in the military him and his fiancee were having problems and I didn't hear from him for a few weeks lucky for me I knew some of his buddies and i told them all tell him to call home finally he did and i told him if he ever went a long period of time without calling me I would call his C.O. he really yelled at me then lol but never had problem with him after that and he never married the girl. I knew he was just going through something! you know what love does to people!lol

    God bless you. You can tell a person's character by how they treat their parents.
