According to Brooke Burke, she prefers that her children look up to her as a mother and parent first before considering her their friend.
The Dancing With The Stars host says that as hard as it may be at times, she believes it’s best that parents lay down the rules with their children rather than trying to befriend them. She writes on her blog:
“I think being a parent is much harder than being a friend. And being willing to sacrifice that pitch and catch, that give and take exchange of love is really hard and really painful at times. But I’m hoping that when we look back at this phase of our life, that it will be for the right reasons and they’ll know I taught them valuable life lessons.”
