"It's both your responsibility and your family's. I've found that it works better if I take the initiative and contact them because I know their usual schedule better than they know mine (a result of living together for 18…"

"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…"

"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…"

Is the parent or child responsible for keeping contact?

Hello AOM!This is my first post to the forum.

When I was growing up, casual nudity in the locker room and showers was common.  I don't remember any guy being shy when nude around other guys, and we all saw that everybody was about the same "down there."But in today's world, casual nudity in the locker room and showers is becoming more and more rare.  And due to easily-viewed porn, many/most guys feel inadequate "down there," and both sexes gossip and bully guys outside the locker room.I feel sorry for these younger guys.  But with the…See More
