Letters to nowhere?

Hello, I was wondering if not hearing from your child for months was normal? Do they get to write often? We have sent 4 letters and have only received his 1st letter, none after. Is this normal?

I generally get a letter from my child every two to three months.  But sometimes the gap is longer. If you ever got 6 months between letters, let the social media ladies know (the ones who monitor this board) and they will send an inquiry.  As far as I can tell, the children have a letter writing day every two months at their center. If they have received a eltter since the last letter writing day, then they write their response here. But if they miss that day it might be two more months before it happens. Some centers are better at "making up" letter writing than others.  Also some kids are more eager to write than others.

Hi Darlena, 

As Sarah mentioned above, this is pretty normal. As you really get to know one another, you will likely start seeing more letters come in. However, depending on many factors, such as the child missing a letter writing day, it may be months in between letters. I would encourage you to keep writing and developing a relationship. This will help your kiddo have questions to answer when they are able to write you back. :) Again, if it is ever six months in between letters, please let us know and we will be more than happy to send an inquiry to ensure your sweet child is okay!
