Parent or Friend?

Monicka wisely said to me the other day, "Much as you might want to be your child's friend, you can't sacrifice parenting to friendship - a parent's role is that of a parent and not a friend."

So I was interested to read some kids' contributions to a BBC vote entitled, "What makes a good parent?" The themes that emerged from the kids' comments emphasized that our children think a good parent is one that cares for a child, provides loving discipline and help with homework.

Happy Parenting,
