Absolutely. And my dh at 31 has lost both his parents already. Its very hard for him during certain situations when he would love their opinion on something. I know I still need my mom. I talk to her every day.

 I feel not really-now when parents get to a certain age I think it is reversed that parents need their kids.

Depends. I don't speak to my father and would have been better off without him. My mother, I talk to her every day.

Yup

I don't have mine anymore and I'm 27. I haven't spoken to them in 4 years.

 yes and it's a shame my mother doesn't see that. I became an adult and she pretty much acts like i'm not a live

Yes. I still need my mom. My husband still needs his mom. Not for financial support of course, but to talk to, laugh with, get advice from, etc.

My kids are 26 and almost 28 and still need us for different reasons.  Our kids still ask our advice on things, and Im glad they do.  Of course they can take it or leave it but Im grateful that once they got to be adults, they didnt just forget about us.  I hope our kids will always need us.  I dont want to be one of those old people who is just "forgotten".
