Parenting is a job on it’s own that perhaps however experienced you may be, you still have a lot to learn because every child is unique in their own way. It even gets harder when there is no friendship at all between children and parents.
I really think the days of military parenting are long gone especially because right now children are so exposed.
Let us find a way of normalizing friendship and parenting, its a better way to raise children now days. Friendship creates trust between the parents and children. Let your child know that you are not just their mother or father, they can also count on you as a friend.
Let children be free with you, believe me it will save you a lot of issues in the future.
Every time you make your child feel like your decisions are final and you can’t talk about them, you are forcing them to be rebellious. You can try and check the history of people society deems spoilt. Most of the time they come from families that are strict, families that were so uptight.
That environment is very favorable for anyone to be rebellious because they think they have to fight to get what they want.
Being friendly with your child does not mean you have lost your place as a parent to them. You can still be friends with your child and still have the upper hand as a mother or father.
Find time and talk about issues, its better for a child to hear solutions from you than their mates. Get time and just play with you children to create a beautiful bond, you shall be grateful one day.
This doesn’t completely mean that you should over look things just because you want to be friends with your child. Discipline them, let them know what they have done is not right. Don’t compromise with your values but be very understanding.
