This is such a funny article, being a mother for the past 22 years I do relate but really society and ourselves put so much pressure on being good parents that you do need to take a step back and just admit that we are not perfect or have super powers so what if our kids eat a box of Mac and Cheese but the one that really get me going is mothers who say "my best friend is my daughter" and vice versa, you're not supposed to be each others best friend, if you are I'm very sorry for you that you have no other life besides the one you have at home, that being said as parents we're supposed to parent our kids not be their friends. Maybe that's why kids now a days have that entitlement feeling and can't do anything for themselves.
