There is a new trend in American parenting where the parents attempt to be their child’s friend instead of their parents for the first 18 years of their life. However, this is when children need parents, not friends, from their parents. Once the child hits their teen years, this is more acceptable as a friend could be someone to tell secrets and problems too, but they still need parents.

Due to this wish to spoil their kids and stay friends with them, most parents don’t attempt to discipline their kids or follow through with consequences. However, this is a minority of the parents. Most parents are too afraid to let their kids out of their sight and act more like the overbearing babysitter than the parent according to studies.
