Be Your Child’s Parent, Not Their Friend

Be Your Child’s Parent, Not Their Friend

One of the problems we have is that too many parents are “pleasing parents.” By that I mean, they want their children to be their friends. Well, guess what? Your children will someday be your friends, but along that path of friendship, there will be many times when they’re going to despise you, and that’s fine. You need to set the tone and you need to tell them what’s right and wrong. If you try to be their friend, you’re going to find yourself in a situation where you lose the discipline. You lose the control and you’re not able to regulate their lives as well.

We always appreciate your comments.
