Fatherly Pearls of Wisdom: Call Your Parents Once a Week or Month
Call your parents at least once a week or a couple times a month. It will make them so happy to know you care for them so much.You know, when most kids fly the nest, they can become so consumed by their new sense of freedom and independence, that they can neglect to keep in touch with their parents. Some people move out of home and they are hardly seen again and that's just not right! While you might go home for your mom or your dads birthday, or the occasional Sunday dinner! Even that's better than nothing! You should try to keep in touch with your parents by giving them a call from time to time!
And I understand that not everyone has a close relationship with their parents. Some people don't even have any kind of relationship with their parents and that's just sad really. But if your parents love you, and you do have love for your parents, you should try to keep in touch with them from time to time with something simple like a phone call. You should call them up at least once a week or month or every now and then just to see how they are.
And no, emailing them or sending them a text message isn't the same thing lol. While it's still nice to send an email or a text message or something every now and then. Just so they know you're okay and what you're up to and that. If you really care about your parents, speaking to them on the phone will give you a much better idea as to their state of mind (as them yours).
Since you can really tell a lot about a person by the tone of their voice on the phone you know? I'll be honest though, I don't usually speak to my old man on the phone that much. I send him a joke text or funny picture or meme occasionally on Whatsapp or something and he'll reciprocate or retaliate with a reply of some sort or even send me something funny and amusing. And that's cool! That lets me know that he's in high spirits when he does that and I'm sure he thinks the same way about me when I do that too.
But every now and then, if it's been long enough, I'll actually give the guy a call and have a bit of a natter with him. Find out how he's doing and ask him how his arthritis is doing and if he needs any help with anything or anything. And I think he really appreciates it. I mean, what father doesn't like to hear from his son you know?
What about you? Do you call your parents from time to time to see how they are and how they're doing?
Or do you stick to sending emails and texts only?
How often do you go home to see them? Once a week, month or year?
Or just every now and then for a Sunday roast since your mom's roast dinners can't be beaten right!?
