This is a serious question. What do you think a mother is supposed to do for her kids?
This is my response: A mother is supposed to be everything for her kids. She is a cook, cleaner, teacher, disciplinarian, chauffer, best friend, religious instructor, leader and guide.
She is supposed to fulfill these roles while teaching (actually teaching not telling what to do). Teaching the child to be independant and self sufficient.
After the child is able to start reasoning for him/herself, the mother is supposed to gradually let go. When the child is capable of making all the decisions for themselves mother is supposed to stand back and let them.
This question was asked of me and I want your input on it. Thanks.

I mostly agree. I'm not my kids' best friend. They have their own age kids for that. Mother is more than friend, but encompasses many of the duties that may go to friends -- listening, giving advice, etc . . .
