  • Probably much more often than they will want to talk to me. ;)

  • I've got two kids intheir twenties and one in teens. All three still live home, two are just about done with college, one with two degrees and of course my youngest is in hs.

    I worked hard as they were in their late teens to keep open communication. It's something you might think about - I let them make some very grown up decisions some ofwhich had bad consequences from me even though I didn't know which way those situations would go. And some had ok consequences socially and other chosen situations were bad romantically.

    I told my kds that if they are grown up enough to make decisions to be what they consider grown up, then they were grown up enough to deal with whatever consequences came of their actions.
    Repeating that often coupled with I love them no matter what but x decision is yours my child kept us close and still now close.

    they don't share every single thing with me but they share alot,friends always welcome.

  • My daughter lives in CA, I'm in Ohio. We talk at least once a day plus we email, and IM on facebook at least once a day. My parents live in TN & we talk at least once a day if not 2 or 3 times a day.

  • Well, I'm grown, married with a kid and I talk to my mom probably once every 2 days. we are a very close family though. My friend only talks to her mom once every 3 or 4 wks.! I think that's sad.

  • I would hope to talk to them at least four times a week. I hope to be very close to my children when they get older. My mother and I are not as close as we use to be (not my choice) and I can't stand it. I don't want my children to EVER feel the way I feel.

  • I expect to talk to my daughter just about every day; I'm from a family of all females so I don't really know what to expect from my son, but hopefully we can talk at least a few times a week. Judging by the way my DH is with his parents, they only talk once every 10 days or so and before we had kids, not even that much.
