Grown sons -- they dont' keep in touch with parents enough
Why isn't that grown sons grow up and forget about their parents? My brother turned 50 this year; he lives about 1 hour from my parents but barely calls, comes over or invites them over. Some of it may be his wife (who is stand-offish) but it is his responsibility to keep in touch with his parents. There are absolutely no issues between them so I don't understand it. My parents are almost 80 and I know it hurts my mom that she always has to call them if she wants to see how they are. I tried to drop a hint to them a few weeks ago (mom would love it if you came over to see what they did with the basement) and all I got was "oh yeah, we need to do that." My other brother is not a whole lot better but his wife is good at picking up the slack. As for my sister and I, we wouldn't go 2 days without talking at least on the phone to our parents.
Must be a guy thing.
