Does a 5 yr old have the ability verbally to communicate with an adult? Yes. Should a 5 yr old be having adult conversations with adult issues? No Should a child be the parent's friend? No.....a child is a child and should never be a parent's friend. Can you connect and have special moments with your child? Yes, but your child should never be treated like an equal (until they themselves are an adult and living on their own). Your job is to parent your child. If you want a friend then find another adult to befriend.
