What is the ideal relationship between parents and children? This relationship should be more severe, parents imposing their terms automatically, or should it be a friendship? In the latter case, if the child benefit from parents' indulgence and do something stupid? I know that the situation varies from case to case, but I speak in general. My husband and I get ready to be parents again, we want to adopt for the first time, and therefore we want more opinions. So, what do you think?

green, In my opinion your goal should be to raise (train) a child to be independent. This means education both academic and common sense or in the later case at least social skills. Not doing too much for them can be difficult but very necessary. Leading by good example is important and what we used to do is insist that everyone be at the supper table with TV and other distractions shut off. Let that be your special few minutes a day to talk.

Last piece of advice. If you want a friend, get a dog. Good Luck, there is no greater responsibility than raising children and thank God I'm done with that. Great to look back on but itís a lot of work and can be an ify thing even if you do everything right.

I have my opinions on the "friendship" role of parents, but the concept is so relative, I'd only be soapboxing. That doesn't help anyone.

You say "again." Times can change, but in general, did your other child(ren) turn out well? If so, trust your instincts.

IMHO,
Be fair but strict when they are children(strict does not mean inflexible). Friendships will grow as they become adults.
(Have three boys now 41, 39, and 32 who will not go away - just kidding wouldnt want them to. If you are lucky and do it just right they will marry people as "nice" as them and you will grow old with a smile on your face).
