5. Rule-Setter

Though it is important that you spend time with your child and engage in fun activities with them, it is equally important to stay authoritative. Make it clear that there is a boundary between a friend and a parent, and that your child must respect and listen to you regardless of how close you two are. Be sure to set rules and stick to them! After all, that’s what parents are supposed to do.
