  1. It is an honour to regard a sibling as a friend. However what do you do if one of your siblings developed an overbearing,slow, Reverend(ds) like way of talking in his adulthood--something the other siblings are not used to and which became an frustration and sounds foreign?

  2. I think this is just the reason I wrote this article. Firstly that it is possible to develop a friendship with your child, secondly that you have to put away all parental authority, thirdly that you educate your child in what real friendship is and mean and requires,and fourthly to come to the point where you can tell a child, as a very good friend, that he should not behave that way, with the compassion of a friend and not a parent.
