Friendship with parents has never been that exciting, there are too many red lines your conscience cant cross and you end up being inhibited, you cant talk your mind freely, and life in this kind of friendship becomes slavery.

parents are there to help you in any way they can. i experienced myself trying to be closed with my father. Fathers have their won attitude that they always feel and see themselves as the BIG BOSS. they are not compassionate and they will always say that they are correct. its really very hard to talk to fathers serious matters. When you talk to them serious matter, tendency is they will shout at you. better talk to your mother, surely she will understand you.
