The problem with the world.

Okay, now that I have your attention. I don't think that this is the whole problem with the world. This is just part of the problem.


I think there are too many parents out there that wish to be their child's best friend, instead of being their parent.


Why do people want to be their child's friend? I want my son to like me, yes. But I also know that being his mom is more important than being his friend. I can be tough on him and still show him that I am doing that out of love. That I worry about him and want him to know right from wrong so that when I am no longer right there for him, cause you can't be there for them 24/7 (especially when they are an adult), that I know he will do the right thing no matter what happens. 

I want my son to know that even when he does something wrong, that I will love him. No matter what. That doesn't mean that he gets away with what he has done without punishment.

Am I wrong? I want to be my son's mother. A person that he knows will love him no matter what. That when something happens all he has to do is come to me and together we can get through it. I also want him to have friends his own age. Grow up and fall in love.

I agree whole-heartedly with you. I didn't become friends with my mom until I was in my 30s, although I considered my grandmother my bestie enough to ask her to be my matron of honor. 

Parents need to be the disciplinarian, not the friend.

Exactly.

I haven't been in a church in forever. 

I don't see that happening any time in the future either.



side note (cause I have to tell someone): My son ate almost an entire slice of pizza, plus 7 chicken nuggets for dinner tonight. Then had (I think) half a kit kat bar (which is 2 pieces)
