Over the years of being a Parenting Consultant, I’ve spoken with may parents about what they see as their role, and what they want for their children. So many parents have said, that they want to be their child’s friend.
I believe that when you gave birth, you became a parent, and that is your role!
Over their lifetime, your children will (hopefully) have many friends – some short term, some long term, but they will only ever have you as parents – that is your role!
All children need parents to guide, teach and encourage them – and that is your role.
