When DCFS Needs To Be On Speed Dial: 11 Examples Of Lazy Parenting

4.  Not making an effort to get to know your child’s friends.

Whether you live in the hood or the Hollywood Hills, you should know that every parent doesn’t run their household or raise their children like you do.  So before you allow your child to spend the night with Little Cece down the block, you should get to know Cece’s mom and everyone that is in and out of the house.  So often I see parents who have no phone number to reach their children at or don’t even know their child’s best friend’s last name. Because they are in the dark about things so important, when something serious occurs, they are left in the dark and helpless.  Children can be very susceptible to the influence of their friends so it’s important to know if those friends are more into doing homework or playing hooky.
