How often do you speak with your Mother?

I speak with my mom (and dad) daily. I'm the one mom & dad go to whenever they need help. I do have 3 siblings that live in the same city, but since I'm the oldest everything regarding them financially is sent to me . Per my parents request.

  • every day. occasionally, more than that, if one of them is under the weather. both had severe health problems starting about 6 years ago, and since then, its become a habit to 'check in'. we moved about 4hrs away from them this summer, so its even more important to make that daily call. :)

  • Since we live a 7 hour drive away, email and phone is the way we keep in touch most of the year. We talk on Sundays and email off and on throughout the week.

  • It is good you are in the loop re your parents finances - you don't want anyone to take advantage of them! I talk to my mom at least once or twice a week and I have her keep me informed on any financial questions she has.

  • When we lived out of state, I only talked to my parents about once a week. But now that we live in the same town, I'd say I talk to my mom 6 days out of the week. She takes DD to school/AWANA 3 days a week, and we're usually in contact by phone or e-mail on most other days. It's nice...I never realized I missed my mom until we started getting in touch so much more.

  • I used to talk with my mom almost daily, but about a year ago, things got very uncomfortable between us, but not by my doing. I'm the peacemaker in my family, but I have no idea why she's avoiding me now. I've tried to talk with her, but she shuts me out of things. I figure the road goes both ways, and when she's ready to talk, she can come to me instead of me going to her.
