“We are friends to our kids…we say no for nothing”…okay…so thats how u sum up a friend’s job?? This “parents r like friends” theory doesn’t really set into me…
Parents today take the path of saying no to nothing, just in order to stay in control…or atleast claim that they are the ones in control..!!One helluva diplomatic lot, i must say..when they know that their saying no or yes isn’t given a damn…they say a simple ‘yes’…so that at least they r informed f what their kids r upto n keep a check on their lives……is this being friends??
Parents today should set some limits for their children..because if they don’t, they don’t remain parents anymore..n can never fall in the category of friends because they are being fake to their children..its like some major household political drama…!!
Parents today are needed to be free n genuine with their kids…they should treat there children as adults n not try to become children themselves…If parents are genuine enough, the genuineness is reciprocated, n there ends the need of this mockery of ‘friendship’.
So parents should be parents…they are needed that way…nothin more n definitely nothing less…..
