hi, do u see ur family often? r they living close to u? how do u keep in touch with them? ring them? go to visit them? or just send emails? one of my sister lives overseas, i can only see her once in a yr, she works in the office, i usually send her emails ,she can reply me straight away! very handy! at least i know how was her day, is she busy ,upset or happy---instant reply through emails. my mother lives by herself, about 45 kms from my house, she is very indenpdant, she will come out and have lunch with me once a week! i dont see my brother very often, cos his wife.....well, long story! anyway, how about u??

hi debbie! good for me, I always see them everyday... We just live in one compound and they were like my neighbors. Both my sister and brother got their own family and I am happy because, I got to see them almost everyday. I still live at my parents house.. and I sure miss them every time I'm away..especially my little nieces! I love them!

I still see my parents and sibling everyday. Every minute. We are still living in one roof. We are still intact.

I am very lucky that my brother, Father and Mother lives with me. If for any reason they have to go somewhere than I use to ring them or try to chat online. When everybody of them have to go far from me then I feel very sad. I can understand what happens to you when they are far from you. I wish everything will be normal in your family. best of luck for that

Hi debbie. Well im 18 so im currently living with my parents and all of my siblings. I have 7 siblings. I think family reunions would be hard on the future. I dont have too much contact with my dad´s side of my family(my dad has 6 sibling, two live on other cities). I also happen to live with my grandparents on the side of my mom and my auntwhich no one on my direct family get along with,(long story here as well).

I'm living with my family in the house so i see my mother and father everyday as well as my brother. My two other sisters were in two different places far from us so we don't see that often. My older sister have moved in Norway and haven't seen her for a month now. I'm missing her so much. Good thing we still can communicate through chat or even by leaving emails. My younger sister is in a town 5 hours drive from our home. But she always makes sure that she can go home once a month. I call from time to time too.

well first of all don't worry of beginning lonely hope internet has solved your problem in my case mom is sitting next to me and watching what i am typing then in case of dad he stays with me too but brother stays in different state as he got job there only so i can meet him only 6 months once but we both often chat in net and text so we don't find communication as problem but i cant see his expression and all what to do we have to forgive anything to get something

seeing my family can be done via internet but seeing and touching them personally i think every 2 years. i came to saudi for work and it is very hard not seeing my family. sometimes when i talk to my daughters i am crying because i really miss them. i hope they are still okay there and eating well without me. my mother said my father is not eating well because he missed me so much. he is suffering from colon cancer and i hope he can still wait for my vacation to come before something bad happen to him. i pray to god that he will give my father strong mind to fight for his condition so he can survive.

I see them three times a year at most. We have never been close, and I have to go see them, they never come to my home. This stresses and saddens me. Be glad if you are close to your family, and they have a good relationship with you.
