Well to be honest, parents being their kids best friend, while bad, is nowhere near as bad as the parents who aren't around to raise their kids. The worst parents are the ones who let the kids learn everything they know from TV. When you use that box to babysit your kids for you, you're putting a lot of trust in whatever random program may show up. I mean, I like Family Guy, but I'll be darned if I want my kids growing up on it's values. I mean you wouldn't want your kids to think it was somehow OK to light their sister on fire, because "Fire is cool."
