Looking around my school you notice the effect trends have on the personality of those around us. Most of think the youth of society are mostly affected, but what about the adults? This same question was proposed in Andrew Reiners article, Parents you’re not doing your kids any favors by being “cool”.
This article explored the topic of whether or not being cool actually affected your children for the better. In My opinion, as a parent it is your job to discipline your child and set rules that you are the leader. Showing the same actions as teenagers will make your children think that they can treat you like there friend and not like an adult and wont follow the rules.
In Andrew Reiners article I think he was saying why it was unbeneficial. I agree with my personal experiences and I think that adults should not try to be friends with their child.
