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.
