I can't imagine being FB friends with the kid. That seems very TMI. However, we do use the chat function in Skype a fair bit. I probably talk to her that way 1-2 times a week on average. With her dad she usually communicates via text messages (but or a reason, like yesterday when an ATM in Turkey ate her card), and we both call her once in a while, like maybe once a month.
i lost interest in that link at, helicopter parenting..one sibling went away to college and even further away to grad school, the rest of us were just commuters at local colleges who came home at the end of the day.
I never visited my kids at college until their grads but the schools they went to were less than an hour drive so I'd wait till they took the occasional weekend to come visit me.
Do you mean that if grandma came to his apartment he would leave the apartment "as is"?
Ok, I wasn't quite sure what you meant. Gotta say though that I still reorganize the house prior to a visit by my mother and try to make it look acceptable to her.
