As a parent of a wonderful nine year old daughter, I can tell you that my goal has always been to be close to my daughter. What parent doesn’t want to have a positive and friendly relationship with their child?

Unfortunately, parents get caught up in a mode of placing the need to be their child’s best friend and confidant ahead of being their parent. Children grow and develop very quickly. One minute, they are 18 months in diapers and saying short barely understandable sentences and suddenly they are 16 asking for the car keys!

…But what happened in those impressionable years of growth in between?

Mac Bledsoe, father of former NFL quarterback Drew Bledsoe, devised an entire parenting approach that he now travels the country introducing to folks in presentations. It’s called “Parenting with Dignity”. One of the best features of Mac’s course is the principle aligning your child’s choices with their age. For example, assuming that at age 18, your child will have 100% control over his/her world, then at age 2, he only gets 2/18th’s control (peeing, pooping, crying, mumbling) at age 9, he would get 50% control, etc..

Given that principle, even at age 17, your child still does not get complete control over his/her world. These older years are the toughest; especially if you have deviated from the path of “parent” in favor of an easier, less aggravating road as “friend” in their earlier years. Teenagers who have not experienced you as a consistent and regular “parent” will try to introduce democracy into the equation as they grow older, in an effort to sway the decision in their favor.

…much like they would do in a conversation with a friend.

Parenting is hard, but it is never a democracy. Only when your child has reached their 100% of control, can the relationship truly evolve into friendship and contain democratic decisions. Remain consistent in your messages and routines and insist that your child follow the same house rules they have known since day one. Be their parent and friendship will ensue once they reach adulthood.
