My son lives 3,000 miles away and we haven't seen him too often since he started school 4 yrs. ago.
We see him approx. 3-4 times a year. I'm heartbroken but he has become very detached from us and his friends seem to be much more important to him than his father and me. What can I do to have him realize that family is first? We have always cherished him and done anything we could to have him be happy.

Thank you Sarah. I think it's great that you speak that often! I'd be thrilled with once a week.
I've heard that they do get better, but I'm in my 60's and I hope I'm still young enough to enjoy it when he does;)

I think this is very normal for the age. I have one off at college and I hear from him once a week (if I am lucky) they come around.
