I see this with my friends as well. You are a parent not their buddy.I fully agree - what works for my spawn does not necessarily works for others.
Close fiends of mine have 2 boys and while I think their parenting style has room for improvement (spend more time with kids / more structure and consistency / less leniency), those 2 are in a word hectic.
They are so naughty and disobedient there is no talking or reasoning with them so a few smacks on the bum at-least makes them stop and listen
But everybody wants to be the cool parent
