1. You're Needy
Let's start with you. It's possible the reason your kids don't call you is because you're needy - a high-maintenance parent. It's not that you're guilty of asking for favors, it's just that your grown children sense your emotional neediness. It's draining to have a parent who needs heavy doses of love and attention. Build an emotional support system that doesn't rely on your kids. Open up to a good friend, add more prayer to your life, or join a support group. Be stronger and become more independent.
