If you become a friend to your children, parent-child relation will improve. But if you assert your authority as a parent, you will risk losing them. Your friendship should be such that the child will not go looking for comfort and guidance elsewhere. Real parents are those who manage to change their children's behavior through love and understanding, even when the child does dreadful things. This world can only be won over through love.
Parents themselves should develop moral values that result in a loving family environment. The love from parents should be such that their children would not want to leave them. If you want to improve your child, the responsibility lies with you. You are bound by your duty towards your child.
