Opens Up About Parenting And Being Your Children’s “Best Friend”


Now this I can totally agree with. Julie Bowen, who we all love in “Modern Family” says that being your child’s first best friend might not be the best choice in the end. After all, you are the parent and sometimes being too chummy with your kids might make it difficult for them to distinguish when you are in “parent” mode and when in “friend” mode (as if that’s possible, anyway). The actress and celebrity mom says in a new interview with Working Mom Magazine:

“[I’ve learned that] being your kids’ best friend is not always the best parenting choice. “It’s not about everybody being happy all the time. It’s about setting limits. In my house that makes my kids very unhappy, like tantrums-on-the-ground-twice-a-day unhappy. But the limits are set.”

She also talks about balancing her work and home life:

My schedule at Modern Family is fantastic, so I didn’t have to give up much. But I’m discovering that my kids now notice more when I’m gone, that they want more time and attention,” says the actress, who advocates for the Get Schooled in Anaphylaxis campaign. “So I shorten trips to a bare minimum or just don’t go at all.”
