Lol Arabian.

Nah, it isn't like that. The 15 year old just went to France on student exchange for 3 months. We barely spoke during that period due to the time difference. All three of us were just fine.

It isn't a NEED, it is just their Dad calling them directly to say "how was your day?" for a few minutes each day. My oldest is planning to apply to University in Vancouver in 2 years. They are both mature, responsible kids. No aprons strings choking anyone here.

Just consistent and open communication between parent and child.

(BTW, ex and I hate each other and barely send one or two texts a month. Anything we have to say goes by email.)
