There are likely to be more distance of relationship. This study is part of the research project "Migration and Skipped-Generation Households in Thailand" which is a qualitative study. This study found that there are two channels to get in touch: 1) getting back home, 2) mobile phone communication. There is no correspondence through the writing of letters which used to be a popular communication channel before the development of communication, as in the present.
