Such a shame when adult children don’t call their parents (the non-toxic parents of course). Amirite?

I see my son once a week, and he never calls me during the week. I don't expect a call every day, but once in a while would help. It hurts.

When I was in college I would never call my parents. If they wanted to know how I was doing I felt it was up to them to call. It's not like I stopped loving them. Hopefully they knew that.

They most likely did know

But I’ve noticed there’s another level of knowing it when kids make that effort

I mean I thought the same thing

They want something then they’ll just call

But seeing how sad the dietician was gave me their perspective

I’ll bet it hurts.

I’m gonna try to learn from their mistakes.

Usually my mom calls me so now I’ll try to be the first to initiate it now

and I knew before her son

He's too busy to call and has no clue

Because he doesn’t call at all

All she asks for is a call once a month because she was tired of calling with no reciprocation

No where is there any suggestion of calling every hour

My comment didn’t clarify that because I thought it was clear but I guess not

I see her once a week because the kids unit doesn’t need consults from her often

I guess but it seems like his reason is he’s busy because some children get caught up with their own children and jobs and spouses and don’t bother with their parents

And yeah there is a reason but I just don’t find busyiness a good one

Oh that is sad. At the nursing home my mama was in there was a lady that had no family come and visit but once a year. It broke my heart to see that. I would go over and sit with her for a few just to chit chat.

I'm guilty of not calling as much as I should. No excuse is acceptable. Sometimes it's tough when they have gone downhill to the point where they don't know who they are talking to, or keep repeating things, but still, it's not a good excuse.

I'm sure it is, in certain circumstances. If I called my parent a lot just to 'chat' though, he would find it odd. If he lived alone I would definitely call more, just to make sure he's okay.

Every situation is different

This particular post stems from the sadness I feel for our dietician at work

and I understand that not every circumstance will the same for other parent-child bonds

Who do parents love more than their children? NOBODY. Go call your mom and dad. Mine are gone and I sure wish that I had more time to talk to them.

It is. I call my mum at least once a week.

Like that cliché quote says: you'll miss it when you don't have it anymore.

I can't speak for all, but I call or visit my parents almost every day.

I would give anything to call my parents one more time.

The old saying is very true "You don't know what you have until its gone" sad smilie

I used to call my parents every day just to make sure that they were okay.

Maybe the parents never raised their children right.

Guilty as charged, I don't remember to call my relatives very often. Not that I don't want to I just don't always remember to. But my parents call me every week, even though they've been abroad for more than 10 years. I'd say I'm still very close to them despite the distance.
