It really depends on many factors such as the kid, the parent, the environment they're at, etc.
The main things about being a good parent is: protection, respect and discipline.
You don't need to be a friend, that's not your mission, but you're not supposed to be the enemy either. Try to find a balance that suits you as a parent and your child.
There are no right and wrong answers to this. Sometimes you do a good job, at other times, hindsight suggests other paths that could have been taken. It is a learning journey without a finishing line.
Producing Good Children is one thing, growing up good is one thing, they are the leaders in future is another thing, if they come good in the future, then you did good job, otherwise the outcome could be bad parenting...
Well my only advice is to be there when they need you. To hold them when they cry no matter what age, be there to listen and offer advice on what you know do not lie to them.Don't push them to hard, a little is ok but if they dont like a sport and are not haveing fun dont push them to play it.Everyone says dont be a friend to you kids but you can. Find out what your kids like and go with it , weather its sports or fishing or a love for animals just help them become the best adults they can be.
