Parents Being Friends

teenagers care children

Parenting could be a tight rope between being parents and friends of our children. Should I be a friend? Will I lose control? Will my kids take advantage of me if I get too close??




I really like how this article does not display parenting as an established and fixed concept, but more of a variable that changes with their child\'s age and maturity. I think this is also something that parents find hard to accept. A lot of parents fail to realize that and tend to act the same way that they would towards their 25-something as they would to their teenager. Such a behaviour could also lead to parent-child conflict, thus causing more problems. This article brings the same issue from a different perspective and briefly guides a parent as to how they should behave towards their child.
