That's what I feel is happening with my daughter as well. More and more we're starting to relate to each other as friends even though she's only 16 years old. She's a lot more mature and grounded than any of her friends and the times where she still needs me to be "mommy" are getting few and far between.I find that what's actually happening is that my dad and I are getting to equal terms a lot faster than most kids and parents do. We're moving towards the "friends" sort of relationship, while most of my peers still think of their parents as an authority figure to be avoided and lied to.
LOL, nah she's a good kid. She's giving her father a lot more trouble and I think that's due to his different parenting style.If I sound like your kid... then I apologize on his behalf. As hunky dory as the above sounds, I am still, and will always be, a giant pain in the ass.
