I have 5 kids, and I was never a "Friend" to any of them;

Funny stuff.

I constantly call my son my best friend.  And I think he will be quite quite fine for it.

Well, you're wrong.

There's only one right way to raise a child, after all.

You talking to me?

You think me pointing out the folly of your parenting is threatening?

Too fucking funny.

If that is  the case, apparently you really KNOW that you're wrong.

Who said that?

You're not your kid's friend...it's not in his best interest for you to be so...

Here's the thing Kid.  You are not your child's peer, you are his parent.  Peers are a dime a dozen, but a good father is priceless.

That you are your son's best friend? Yeah, that's sad.

He could do a lot better, i'm sure.

then again, maybe not.

Kid,

If your son is your best friend, you need to cultivate some adult friends of your own. There is plenty of time when you son become an adult for friendship between parent and child. It is also OK to be a friend when a child is young - infancy and preschool - as long as you keep up with the adult responsibilities of keeping the child warm, dry, safe, and entertained so as to accommodate later education. During middle childhood, friendly activities contribute to bonding, but the parents must always be the one to set the limits. This is your responsibility as a parent at this time. Setting limits is also an important responsibility during adolescence.

Just taking an educated guess, but if you are trying to be a "friend" to your son, you are leaving to your wife ALL the responsibilities to be a parent. Inasmuch as he is male, it is teaching him that the female is always the one to set limits, punish, and take responsibility. That will not make him a prize catch when he shops for a wife.

Marriages and parenting both work better when both partners are taking their fair share of the adult responsibilities.

Black boys fail because educators fail them.
