Reasonable means what a reasonable person would see as normal or not excessive. What is reasonable depends on the circumstances of the particular case. A phone call from a parent every day would likely not be excessive, but several phone calls every day (absent an emergency) could be excessive. "Reasonable" is a term defined by the totality of the circumstances, and the Court would define it based on all the facts available.
