Here are the warning signs.
This week in Forbes, the phenomenon of the "best friend mom" was explored.
How do you know if you're a "best friend mom"?
Forbes gives the following clues:
- You dress like your daughter
- You offer TMI about your personal life
- You try to befriend your children's teenage friends
Being a "best friend mom" can mean your teen confides in you more. But, according to this article, moms who try to befriend their teenage children end up leaving them motherless -- at a time when they really need a mom most.
Do you believe you can be a best friend to your child? Or does being a mother mean you can never really be your kid's BFF too?
