My son is 25 and married, how often should I call him and my daughter in law. My daughter is 19 and lives with her fiancée but I am having trouble with the same question. I am so anxious to talk with them and see them that I get really nervous and don't feel like I am being a good enough mom during our short times together. I also am having trouble balancing my step children which are my other children u feel that in being prejudicial and wrong in saying it that way. I also feel it is the right way to put it as my children are my children.

How often you contact them depends solely on your relationship w/ them and what you both mutually desire. I know adult children that might speak to their mother multiple times/day... and adult children that go months (or longer) w/out speaking to their mother.

Personally speaking... I hate phones, so pretty much never TALK to my mom, but I might email her a couple of times/week... or not for a few weeks. It just depends.
