I am Not Your Friend. I am your parent. My mom was saying this to me long before it became popular. I was so envious of my friends' parents even though even back then I thought they were a little slow. Sixty years later I'm glad my mom was ON IT !
Even if they're in trouble, fall asleep in the car, movies anything! and when they go away to sleep somewhere else, call them and tell them you love them and you send them kisses ♥ I do that for my kids always :) ALWAYS!
