“I need you to be the parent so I can be the kid.”



“I need you to be the parent so I can be the kid. It scares me when you always tell me to use my own judgment. We don’t like to admit it, but we really need you to act like parents. Someone needs to be in charge. I need you to be the parent so I can be the kid.

You should be a good role model. Don’t tell me not to do something when you’re the one I learned it from. If you don’t want your kids to drink like you do, don’t always be drinking. If you don’t want your kids to smoke and drink and swear like you do, don’t always be smoking and drinking and swearing.”
