"Difficult to say.  I am the one that calls my father, he doesn't call me at all. However, my daughter (step) has a father who didn't call them for the longest time.  It hurt me that she had a father who didn't seem to care…"

"Since you are asking for advice i would suspect a part of you feels as though you should call, call them, keep it short tell them you only have a little bit of time and just wanted to see how they are doing.  I do not feel it is one…"

"Good question, as I've run into this too, having gotten married and moved away within the past 5 years.   Who makes the first call depends on how much of a relationship you want to have. If you want to be more isolated and independant…"
