Do your kids like you?

 So many people I know are SO worried about their kids liking them and being friends with them that they make some questionable choices so their kids will still like them.

Do your kids like you? Do you care if they don't?

Hmmmm. I want her to be happy but not at the expense of her safety and I'm not going to give her everything she wants.

They are little so yes, but I don't care as long as I do right by them.

They're only one; so I think it's safe to say they like me...

She only does because I let her eat from my plate.

I think they like me but I've never asked and I don't really care so long as they're happy and safe and know they're loved. They can dislike me all they want, really, because in the end my job is to be their parent not their friend.

My kids shared that they hated me several times while they were teenagers.  :)  They have since recanted and laugh at their younger selves.  My kids and I are still very close even though they are in their 30's.  I never tried to be their friend though.  I have always been their parent.  I am the first they call when anything happens in their life (after their spouse).

My kids like me, but more importantly, they respect me.

I'm not her friend, I'm her Mom.
