My Thoughts on Washington Post Article by Rachael

In Parents you’re not doing your kids any favors by being “cool” by Andrew Reiner it talks about how parents are acting more like a best friend than a parent. In the article there is a parent and her daughter with her friends. They are in a restaurant and the girls were talking about a teacher. One of the girls said that the teacher should lose a few pounds. Her mom said ,” I know right?” Now, if I was a parents or even an adult I would say that’s not right and you shouldn’t say that about people. The mom wanted to be cool so she agreed with the girls. A parent needs to be a parent and not a friend.
