|The cover art from my parenting handbook: Available on Amazon.|
Do your kids think of you as:
D. All of the above
Moms and Dads: You are not doing your job unless you have been thought of as all of the above by your kids at some point! The correct answer is "D".
This kernel of wisdom was told to me by one of my fellow teachers (thanks, Nancy) and has stuck with me all week. Truer words were never spoken!
Stay strong! Parent with loving authority. Your children want you to set limits and not try at any time to be their friend. They want and need you to be their parent.
