Mom and Daughter Dressing the Same: Okay or No Way?

Just like the Amy Poehler's character in "Mean Girls," some moms strive to be their child's best friend. Gina calls herself a "cool mom," and she sees no issue with dressing daily to match her daughter. What's your take? Is it okay to be a "cool mom" and best friend to your child? Where is the line drawn between parent and friend?

I see absolutely nothing wrong with a mother & daughter that are best friends, same goes with fathers and sons. I feel that if you're not on a friend level with your child, they will only show respect towards you or for you when they are in your presence and when they're not in your presence, all respect for you is gone and that they will hide things from you and that they will do the exact opposite of what you want. As your child's friend, I feel that you can have more influence on them.

Friends and BFF...What does this mean! Mothers should be mother to their kids, NOT best friend (straight up stupid) Your kids best friend or BFF should be of their peers. Mother should never say I'm my child best friend, just keep and open
Communication that's it. None of that CRAP I'm mt child best friend. That best friend should be someone they became very close with they meet along the wat like School etc...NEVER THINK YOUR KID WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING, GET REAL.....If your kid says mom is her best friend, then she is a lonely person with no friends.My mom is Martha....My best friend is Linder
