"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…"

"I think you should hold yourself to a reasonable schedule--say, every two weeks or so.  That way, you can honestly feel that you're doing your part.  Then, if they still say "you never call", you can legitimately say…"

I'm a recent college graduate who doesn't live anywhere near my fambam.So everytime I call anybody in my family or my family gets nostalgic the first thing I KNOW they are going to say is "Why don't you ever call me?!"

"Apparently the routing was simply because it was a shorter distance, and therefore less expensive to fly.  I've seen reporting that the FAA prohibited that particular airway to US airlines back in April, on a "just in case" basis."
