My son is in college in Korea, he's 24 years old and stopped calling me mom at a very young age (about 10).. He refers to me as mom when others are around but if he want to share something with me via text or message he never says, Hi Mom to begin the conversation like most kids, he just gets to the point without addressing me at all. I told him how I feel and asked him, "Why don't you call me mom anymore?". His answer was, "well it's a private message, I'm not talking to anyone else". Also I send him money periodically and message him to tell him I deposited money into his account, his response was, "thank youuu". It really bothers me why he doesn't say thank you Mom. Actually when he first arrived in Korea to begin his college there 8 months ago, he said "thank you mama" but now doesn't say it anymore. Does anyone else have this problem?
