 I'm sorry, that must be frustrating.  If your sure he's fine I would back off.  Hopefully with the holidays coming up you'll see him soon.

I feel your pain as well.  I have the same thing with my youngest daughter.  I really think it is true - kids this age are spreading their wings and establishing themselves as adults.  I believe they will re-establish relationships with parents after some time.  I still send my daughter a text every week just to let her know I love her and hope she is having a good week.

I am sorry.  Maybe he'll get over it and get back in touch.

Now that he is out on his own,He just seems to be most likely finding his own way,Is he okay??Is,he is working??I am sure you will hear from him soon

send him an email detailing your concerns, if he replies, you'll have your answer, if he doesn't, I suggest running through your memories for the reason... what you and your husband have done to alienate him

Maybe just try to slowly establish a routine, minimum contact once a week: a text, email, photo, card. No pressure, just contact, be consistent and friendly.

My son moved to Cali last year from Illinois, for the first 6 months we heard from him a lot. In May his girlfriend moved out there. The contact has dropped off considerably. For the first couple months I was frustrated but as time has moved along, I have gotten used to it. Now if I don't hear from him in a week or so, I send a message or call. He has established his own life, and I have to be glad he is doing well and enjoy the time/contact I do have with him.

Hopefully you are not paying for that phone if so I'd cut it off. If he can't be bothered with you I wouldn't pay for him to ignore me. I'm so sorry. *HUGS*

 Give him some space. He will come around.
