Currently, many young people are willing to do anything to continue their studies, including leaving their houses. This study aims to identify the interpersonal communication of daughters with their parents who convey long-distance care because they move to other islands to continue their higher education and minimize conflicts that will occur. This research employed a descriptive qualitative method with an interpersonal communication approach and descriptive analysis as the data analysis. The subjects of this study were four female students from Kalimantan who were studying at the Faculty of Communication and Informatics, Universitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta. Semi-structured interviews were conducted as a data collection technique. The results of this study indicate (1) communication was done almost every day between daughters and their parents, especially with mothers, (2) there was an exchange of messages that could occur from daughters to parents or vice versa, and (3) the attitude that daughters showed to their parents was always being honest, open, and understanding each other. Hence, habits would be formed and make complete trust from parents to their daughters. Furthermore, (4) daughters continuously attempted to negotiate to perceive problems from two sides without hurting each other’s feelings and thoughts. Consequently, communication that was performed every day would lead to supervision from parents by negotiating conflict properly. Over time, it would also increase the level of parental trust to minimize conflicts that will occur in the future.
