Yes, you can be both friend and mother to your children. I believe my kids are the best friends I have.
Yes, you can, but being mother comes first. They have to know that you are there for them as a friend, but also have to know that the rules are made for a reason. Putting the "friendship" part first can cause a lot of issues.
Yes indeed. My mother is my best friend. And I really mean that. She is the person that I text all the time, the friend I go to visit, the person I call up to go shopping or out to lunch.
I know I can always depend on her and trust her with even my deepest secrets, and she can trust and depend on me the same way. I wouldn't trade her for a million outside friends.
I think that there is definitely a time and a place for both. When a child is young, and discipline and boundaries are the rules, friendship is rare, you are a parent, you are establishing how life will be. When they are older and things are established, if there isn't rebellion, you can be a friend. As soon as there are problems, of any kind, I believe you are a mother.
I have always believed that children will have many many friends in their lifetime but they will only have 1 mother. It is a parents job to make sure that children grow up with discipline and responsibility so sometimes it is hard to be their friend when you have to be their parent. Having a strong and friendly relationship is important for any child/parent but I think that being a loving mother is more important than being their friend. Once the child grows up and makes their own way and own decisions in life, I definitely feel that the relationship can become a friendship.
I agree with bethany p. As a young child you need to be a mother, friendly and loving but also a figure of authority. As your child gets older boundaries have been set and met. Everyone knows where they are, and what is acceptable. The friendship factor comes in as your child emerges from the angst of being a teenager. Usually the friendships are more between mother and daughter, womens issues become more apparent and advice is sought from mum. In a loving family this advice is given and the young daughter begins to see mum in a different light.
