My middle son walked in the room and I randomly said “Hello, friend.” (Never do I call the kids friends..it was strange that I said it.)  He looked at me with the most serious eyes and said “I don’t ever want to be your friend. Don’t you know it is so much more special to be your son.” Wow! It really hit me; the sacred relationship between parents and children.  I have heard many parents say they want to be their kids best friend.  Parents please, please don’t settle! We have such a more powerful connection with our children one that surpasses friendship.
